My computer will not restart when the restart button is pushed, it will restart when triggered by an MS program saying it needs to restart. Can I rest something to make the button work again?

Most newer computers don't even have a restart button, to do a shutdown just hold the power button in for 4-5 seconds.

The saving your settings software restart in xp is necessary to prevent file corruption, I only use the power button shutdown in cases of a hard lockup of the OS.

First I make sure cap lock and shutdown thru task manager won't work .

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

There is a setting in Power Options in the Control Panel that tells the computer what to do when that button is pushed. Check there to see what yours is set to and change it to what you want it to be. That setting can be found on the advanced tab of Power Options.

Thanks but I can see I did not explain it well, when I hit shut down and get the applet for stand by, shut down, restart the restart does not work it just shuts the computer down.
