This may seem like a dumb question, but do I need to LOGOFF prior to shutting down my computer at the end of the day? I have Vista Home Premium, and have only two accounts, an Admin one which I rarely use and always log off when I'm done with it, and a general account that is used for day-to-day stuff. It almost seems like the LOGOFF command on the general account is an unnecessary step....but I don't want to skip it if, indeed, it does something beneficial prior to the SHUTDOWN step.

Thanks in advance for the help.

No. Shutting down logs you out by itself.

Twitter - My statements do not establish the official position of Microsoft Corporation, and are my own personal opinion. (But you already knew that, right?)
