    Default Quick Question

    My power button turns my computer off completely (like when it restarts), but before it made it go to sleep (had to push it again to turn it back on) but when it was asleep and I turned it on, I never had to wait for the windows items to appear. Just today it has changed to turn off completely when I push it normally (holding will turn it off also) help? will give rep

    Were you holding it? Sometimes a soft click will only put it to sleep, while holding it for a few seconds will turn it off.

    Was your computer low on power? Sometimes that happens to me when my lap top is low on power.

    You should be able to set somewhere what happens when you push the button.
    So the setting probably got changed.

    In Windows 7 when you open the Start Menu (by clicking the Start Icon on the Task Bar) on the bottom right there is a little box which says what happens when you push the "Power Button", Sleep, Shut Down, Switch User or whatever, right clicking that box brings up a menu (with only one item on my PC at least) click on "Properties" and you get a Dialog Box where you can change the "Power Button" action.

    I agree with Super Nova Alix. The same thing happens with my lap top when the battery is to low.
