Shutting Down

Two minutes to start up. Two minutes to shut down. A minute to start up your programs and find your files again at the beginning of the day and another minute or two after lunch. If you go through this routine every day, you’re wasting time. At 10 minutes a day, that’s almost an hour a week, and nearly 50 hours per year down the tubes. Want to get some of that time back? Next time, instead of turning off your computer, why not use one of your other shutdown options instead?

Windows XP gives you a total of three options for shutting down. Choosing the right one can help you get back to work more quickly. All the power-saving options described here work only if your computer includes the proper power management circuitry. (Virtually every computer sold since 1998 should work with these instructions. If you have an older computer, however, you might not be able to use all these features.)
