Start -> Shutdown -> Default to Shutdown?

    Start -> Shutdown -> Default to Shutdown?

    (Vista SP1 - I run in non-aero mode)

    When I choose Start -> Shutdown it always defaults to "Sleep" unlike
    previous versions of Windows which always defaulted to the last choice
    you'd made.

    Is there some way to get the previous behavior or to make the default
    Shutdown instead of Sleep?

    Yeah, in Power Options, edit your 'plan'. Under Power Buttons.

    You can change the Start menu Power button action via Control Panel - Power
    Options - Change plan settings - Change advanced power settings.
