    Shutting Down Tooo Fast....

    Ok, I'm an idiot. I did a registry edit a while back that makes XP shutdown in a certain amount of time no matter what is running. I think that it's keeping my computer from going into standby. I've done some searching and checked out the optimization link thinking that I got it from their but I don't see it. Can someone please help me. Thanks....

    "Action: These allow you to end tasks faster, shut down faster and speed up the menu display. *All Levels
    Purpose: Performance, responsiveness

    More Info: ForegroundLockTimeout, HungAppTimeout, MenuShowDelay, WaitToKillAppTimeout, WaitToKillServiceTimeout

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l]

    Download app_menu_speed.reg

    *note - I have changed the "MenuShowDelay" from 0 to 200. 0 was simply too fast for some people (my wife gave me some grief about it too ). You can edit this as you see fit. The default is 400.

    These next 2 tweaks I consider to be optional. One could argue about whether or not they actually have any speed advantage and you may or may not like the result. I strongly recommend you do these two entries manually so that you can easily undo them if you do not like them but you can also copy and paste them into the .reg file.

    Action: Disable User Tracking Levels 3 & 4 only
    Purpose: Free system resources.

    More Info

    "A value of 1 prevents the system from tracking the programs users run, the paths they navigate, and the documents they open. The system uses this information to customize Windows features. As a result, the system disables customized menus and other features that require user tracking information." (from this page)

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\Explorer]

    is it not that one?
