Custom Power Button Action

Q: Custom Power Button Action

Hi, I really miss the functionality of XP allowing you to set the power button action to ask what you want to do.Unfortunately, Vista seems to have gotten rid of that option, while leaving the ability of the popup ask what wou want to do(shown in this short JScript)(new ActiveXObject("Shell.Application")).ShutdownWindows();Is there a way to "remap" the power button? I've tried to use autohotkey, but it doesn't seem to support the power button...Thanks,-Matt

Preferred Solution: Custom Power Button Action

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Is it possible to hack that button so you could, say, launch a special "locking" program instead of loggoff, shutdown, or any of the other options? thanks.

Whatever I try (both ways as advise here) to make the default at the Start Button (Sleep/Restart/Shutdown etc.) it doesn't stick, stay on Shutdown. Annoying. It's like the old days of Mircrosoft Word when it was new: its settings usually failed to stick, and that went on for nearly a decade.

Hi, I am trying to install the latest version of Xsplit which I know has nothing to do with this forum, but whenever I try to install it I get the error in the title; "Could not access VBscript run time for custom action".

I have Windows 7 64-bit Service Pack 1, fully updated.

I have tried multiple Fix It solutions, none of which have had any effect.

I have also tried this solution which I was able to find on the internet:

"For 64bit Windows:

1. Run Command Prompt as Administrator

2. Type reg delete "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Classes\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{B54F3741-5B07-11CF-A4B0-00AA004A55E8}" /f and press Enter

3. Type c:\windows\syswow64\regsvr32 vbscript.dll and press Enter"

The registry key is never found, even when I try the 32-bit windows equivalent. However, the "c:\windows\syswow64\regsvr32 vbscript.dll" produces a success message when run.

I am running the command prompt in administration mode and the installer of Xsplit as administrator as well.

I have posted on the xsplit forums and they have been completely unable to help. I really hope help can be found here

Hi All. In a previous thread there was a fix to the above error code that involved running a dll command prompt. It worked for some but not for all. I was getting the code when trying to do a HP Update and it was related to updating the Active Support Library.

I found a simple fix. All you have to do is uninstall HP Update and reinstall it from HP's website. Here is the link where I found the info Re: SP41377 Error - HP Active Support Library Error - Other Notebook PC questions - HP Support Forum

NOTE: Reference the reply on the link above by "Sanchertx" He says to uninstall both HP Update and HP Active Support Library. The Support Library did not show up on my list, so all I did was uninstall UP Update and Reinstall it. It worked...YEAH.

Hello. I have a laptop and a desktop computers, both running Windows 7 Pro x64. On laptop, I can set the sleep button to Shut Down (I guess, I don't have the laptop here now so I cannot confirm). I would like to set the DESKTOP computer's sleep button action

only Sleep buttons and I do not want to use S1 nor S3. I want the computer to shut down when I press these buttons. Is there a way? Registry etc?

Hello Group,

Powerpoint 2007 PC Vista

Single slide with video selection menu

Playing video, full screen, kiosk mode.

Inserted a return arrow in lower right corner with action to restart video selection menu slide, so that user can interupt video and make another selection if desired.

The problem: the arrow is not visible. How to make the arrow visible during a full screen video play?

Some sort of layering technique, with the arrow on top? Or somehow change full screen pixel dimensions to slightly smaller than physical full screen size so that the return arrow can be seen ?

Hope someone can help ... thanks for looking in.

A:Powerpoint 2007: Action button not visible during video

I don't think there's an option to bring anything in front of the movie while it's playing in fullscreen mode
But you can place your movies each on a separate slide, have them run (automatically non-full screen mode), resize each one so that it covers most of the slide leaving a small empty part of the slide for a button that will hyperlink to the first slide

In the first slide, put thumbnails for the movies, each one of hyperlinking to the slide where that movie is, so it will give you the effect you're looking for

Hope this helps

Hi every one,
Recently I purchased new PC,
After installing windows XP Pro SP3 I found that there is a missing button in Power option properties. The missing button is (When I press the sleep button on my computer), I can find only (When I press the power button on my computer).
My system configuration is as follow
Mother board Gigabyte EP45-UD3R Rev 1.1
My graphic card is ATI Radeon HD 5670
Windows XP SP3
RAM 4Gb Kingston DDRII
CPU Core 2 Quad 2.66 GHz
It worth saying that I can shutdown, hibernate or put my PC into sleep mode, so the functions are working but only the button is missing.
I will appreciated very much if some can advise me how to restore the missing button. Is there some option in BIOS that will enable this button?
I contacted Gigabyte customer support, but they directed me to Microsoft, I also contacted ATI but they directed me to Microsoft or BIOS settings. In my BIOS I can't find any option that may affect this button. Any advise will be appreciated
Best regards

A:[SOLVED] Button of (When I press sleep button) is not available in my Power option pr

Does the case actually have a separate Sleep Button? I suspect it's not even connected, as the motherboard manual doesn't show a connection for a Sleep Button, only a Power Button.
Windows Power Options won't list it, as it doesn't exist.

If you have a Sleep Button on the keyboard, it might not be listed in Power Options either. That would be up to the Driver software to add that option. You may have to use the software that came with the keyboard to configure the sleep button on the keyboard.

We, fortunately got a bunch of excellent graphical artists here, so, we can expect, this thread will be showcase of excellence soon.

Why we will change?

1. There is a possibility, that you like a particular theme, but you want to change the navigation button only, for that, you change the whole theme. Now, we can particularly change it.

2. We can customize Windows 7 with more richer animation (like we did for Start Orb) of our choice.

How to change?

I have it hooked up like this, two Optical Drives connected to 1 IDE connector/cable which is hooked into the IDE input on the motherboard, both are set to slave.

However we have some users that require the accessibility feature so doing this does not work for us.

A:Adding Custom button to Logon Screen

If start of a script or program is voluntary, why do you want user to make a decision to start it at Logon stage? What changes when user have option to start it while inside Windows?

As for solution, looks like you only option is to replace Accessibility icon with an intermediate executable. What executable should have a window with two options - link or button to start Standard Accessibility features and link or button to start your script/program. This way you will get what you want and save Accessibility features (they just gonna be one click away from user).

Is there any way to set up a hotkey using the windows logo button in sequence with another? for example "Win + Z" or "FN + Win". I have classic shell downloaded on my windows 8.1 laptop, and I want to set up a hotkey for the metro start screen. I'm aware of how to make a hotkey through a shortcut's properties, but there's no way to use the windows button as one of the keys.

A:How can I use the Windows Logo Button as custom hotkey?

I use classic shell and SHIFT-WIN toggles between the two types of desktop. Not in sequence, hold shift and press win. This is a setting under classic start menu "Controls" tab.

Hello,

This a bit of an anal retentive request, but I'd be interested in knowing if it's possible.

I have a user who would like to have a custom button in his Outlook toolbar that will automatically move highlighted email to a specific folder, much in the same way that the delete button moves any highlighted email to the Deleted Items folder.

Probably a bit of a long way round seeing as the user could just highlight and drag to the folder... but for the sake of convenience and my own curiosity... is it possible to do this? And if so, how?

Version of Outlook is 2003.

Many thanks for any input.

Tane

Hello! Chapter 1: After the latest drivers update (Wacom develops driver for Lenovo Active Pen 2), the long press of the top side button leads to activation of screenshot event (kind of Snip and Sketch). It interrupts any drawing activity. For example, Sketchable application has a color picking assigned to this button, which is interrupted by screenshot triggering. Note: There are 2 side buttons on the Active Pen 2, and the top side button leads to the issue. It's not about usual top button at the end of the pen, and it's not about long tap of the pen itself (that "issues" were found in a huge amounts in the internet). I found that 1. Working driver version: Lenovo Pen Service (Wacom provider) 7.5.1.21, 2. not working: 7.6.1.29.Now, community, I ask you how and where to report the driver issue? Chapter 2: I reported the issue to Wacom support. Wacom denied to support me after they realized that I have Lenovo Active Pen 2, so you can see "Lenovo" in the title, not Wacom, that's why it's not a Wacom's problem. Not really clear situation, after all drivers have been downloaded from Wacom site and they are developed by Wacom. Then I went to Lenovo support. I managed to communicate to USA Lenovo support, and they redirected me to my local Lenovo representatives (not USA ones) because of the laptop warranty location. How the laptop warranty is linked to Wacom driver bug? After that destructive finger pointing, I came here. Perh... Read more
