    Default Reduce shut down time through regedit

    I just got a new netbook. It takes a pretty long time to shut down.
    I typed "regedit" in the 'Run' and I changed some numbers there to quicken the shut down time. I did this by referring to a couple of websites.
    What should I do? What numbers are the best to put in? I know those numbers represent milliseconds or something.
    Can anyone help?
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Randomly editing your registry without knowing what you're doing = bad.

    There is a thread on NBR, NBRVistaTips andTweaks, has a bit in it about reducing your shutdown time.

    I went to a restaurant that serves 'breakfast at any time'. So I ordered French Toast during the Renaissance.

    As Les suggest', don't mess with the shutdown time too much, because Vista needs some time for shut off every thing. I wouldn't go beyond 5000, if you really want to reduce it. Though I must say, I haven't changed it (one of the things I passed on in the awesome guide from Les) and its fine for me. Wonder why some are worried about wanting to shutdown Vista in like 2 seconds!!!!!! Just let it do its normal thing, and I can tell you it doesn't take a 'long' time to shutdown.

    I have XP, not Vista.
    By the way, which values should I put 1000 to? The Hung...and the Wait..
    I forgot the names. Sorry.

    That extra shutdown time comes in handy. I've forgot to save word documents and its saved an hour of work.
