Thanks for the reply. I just did some RTFM and page 60 it says.
..After activating it, Shut down menu of start menu will be changed to Sleep.
But is also says it is automatically disabled during windows update and will be temporarily changed from shutdown back to sleep until after all updates are completed.
So maybe due to the plethora of updates I have installed it has not reset itself. Or it could be a but I suppose.
Anyway I can just change it manually as you suggest...
Right Click the Taskbar and hit Properties.
This will open up the "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties".
Goto the "Start Menu" Tab
Power button action: [Change from Shutdown to Sleep]
Can someone answer this for me please. No response to my earlier query on this.
This is what the physical power button (not the windows start menu) looks like when depressed; b/c it is easily depressed accidentally, it provides a menu; I suppose if you want your computer to take some other immediate action you don't need the ASUS tools.
Yes I can get my mind around the Power button menu which works correctly for me. Unlike the "Instant On" Widget with its Enable/Disable toggle that does not appear to do what it is supposed to do.
Next Question - is there a way to stop Asus PowerWiz from appearing on boot without uninstalling it. I want it to be less conspicuous?
I didn't complete the process because I wouldnt be sure how to get it back, but I right clicked on it and an option came up that said "Do not show when windows boots up".. Let me know if that helps.
I had this issue, tried everything...then i bought another hdmi cable and it worked strait away. The first cable was G&BL, some known company and the second was some no name,but it worked. Maybe you had bad luck with both cables...
Same here, and the working cable was actually half the price of the non-working one
I am very interested in the UX31. I am just wondering if it is worth the extra moneyto move up to the DH72 from the DH51. On another note, should one buy the XH with Windows 7 pro? ANy adive appreciated.
I would mostly doing light browsing and emails. But would occasionaly do some very large spreadsheets.
In my opinion, the $400 bump from DH52 to DH72 is pretty steep.
But the DH53 is a better value deal. For approx $1275 (US Dollars), it has the i5-2557M 1.7Ghz processor and the 256GB Sandisk SSD.
I don't think I can justify an additional $125 for a negligible (<5%) performance upgrade to the 1.8GHZ processor in the DH72. But the additional 128GB hard drive space in the DH53 is necessary if you want to store any photo, music, video, or large files.
For your purposes, I don't know that Windows 7 Pro is needed.
