Hi

I have searched the forums for disabling the power button so people cant get passed my computer lock so nobody can get into my computer, i know you can manually do it in the bios/windows but is there some registry key, special send key to disable the power button? I disabled mine through windows but when i press AND hold the power button like some people do it turns off. is there anyway around this? :whistle: ???

No, that would just be silly.

You'd have to do something physical to the machine to dissable the button completely

Or you could look for the process shutdown.exe and run a command like:

While 1
    If ProcessExists("shutdown.exe") Then
        ShellExecute("cmd.exe", "shutdown - a")
    EndIf
Wend

Un-tested, I doubt it works.

I think he was asking if you could dissable the power button on the front!
