Asking what to do when powering off the computer

This is a simple way to prevent your users from pressing the power button accidentally, and causing your laptops to go to the shutdown / hibernate mode. It is to force Windows to ask you for your preferred action after pressing the power button.

To set up the above, do the following:
  1. Goto Control Panel > Power options
  2. Under the "When I press the power button on my computer", click on the drop-down list and fill in the details.
  3. Select "Ask me what to do" and click on OK

That's it...
