I was wondering if there were a way to hide the blue WindowsXP screen on shutdown and see what is going on "under the hood". What I can envision and relate this to is the white text on black background of starting in Safe Mode. I'd like to see exactly what the computer is doing at shutdown. Wondering if there is a command or reg edit that could be implemented so that I could see all that is closing out or shutting down or "going on" while the regular blue logoff screen reads "Saving Your Settings/Windows is Shutting Down". This is not troubleshooting, only out of curiosity. :thumbsup:

I think what your talking about is Verbose Messaging (or something along those lines)

To enable it:

Go to 'Run' and enter in 'gpedit.msc'
Then go to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Then Click 'System'.
In the right pane, double-click 'Verbose vs normal status messages'.
Then enable it.

Your done!

This is almost exactly what I'd like. Is there anything more technical than this? I'm sure if their is, it must be in some sort of dev mode or something.
This works for me for now. Thanks! :thumbsup:
