    Anyone know how to shutdown the computer from the XP welcome screen WITHOUT using the mouse? Occasionally I've been in this situation, and never have found how to do it.

    Sure, the old three finger salute ... twice real quick will bring up the shutdown dialog box, then you tab over to "Options" and then select "Shutdown".

    I think five taps to the space bar will do it too_Or that might just restart.I haven't tried it in a long time but I think hitting the space bar 5 times will shutdown the PC.
