Yank the plug from the wall!!! :huh: (just kidding!)

There's numerous ways to do this without touching the Start button - but you'll have to be a bit more specific about how you want to do it.

You can open Task Manager and select New Task from the File menu. Then type in "shutdown" (without the quotes) and press Enter
You can navigate to C:\Windows\System32 and locate shutdown.exe. Then double click on it to shutdown your computer
You can create a shortcut (on your Desktop) to the above tip, then double clicking it will let you shutdown that way

Here's some of the switches for the shutdown command:
Usage: shutdown [/i | /l | /s | /r | /g | /a | /p | /h | /e] [/f]
	[/m \\computer][/t xxx][/d [p|u:]xx:yy [/c "comment"]]

	No args	Display help. This is the same as typing /?.
	/?		 Display help. This is the same as not typing any options.
	/i		 Display the graphical user interface (GUI).
			   This must be the first option.
	/l		 Log off. This cannot be used with /m or /d options.
	/s		 Shutdown the computer.
	/r		 Shutdown and restart the computer.
	/g		 Shutdown and restart the computer. After the system is
			   rebooted, restart any registered applications.
	/a		 Abort a system shutdown.
			   This can only be used during the time-out period.
	/p		 Turn off the local computer with no time-out or warning.
			   Can be used with /d and /f options.
	/h		 Hibernate the local computer.
			   Can be used with the /f option.
	/e		 Document the reason for an unexpected shutdown of a computer.
	/m \\computer Specify the target computer.
	/t xxx	 Set the time-out period before shutdown to xxx seconds.
			   The valid range is 0-600, with a default of 30.
			   Using /t xxx implies the /f option.
	/c "comment" Comment on the reason for the restart or shutdown.
			   Maximum of 512 characters allowed.
	/f		 Force running applications to close without forewarning users.
			   /f is automatically set when used in conjunction with /t xxx.
	/d [p|u:]xx:yy  Provide the reason for the restart or shutdown.
			   p indicates that the restart or shutdown is planned.
			   u indicates that the reason is user defined.
				 if neither p nor u is specified the restart or shutdown is unpl
anned.
			   xx is the major reason number (positive integer less than 256).
			   yy is the minor reason number (positive integer less than 65536).
