To change the behavior of the Shutdown-button in the Start-menu, go to Power Options in the Control Panel and click Change plan settings at the plan you want to modify. In the screen you now get click Change advanced power settings, expand Power buttons and lid -> Start menu power button and modify the value of Setting.
Just works the same as in Vista!
Worked perfectly. Thank you!!!
Here you go, gleep. Do everything in this quote first, then run the command line I posted.
Nice job douken! Works great! After your post I got some more insight about how the Windows Experience Index works and found out how to get the “Performance Information and Tools” item in the Control Panel working. However, if I click on the “Rate this computer” button I get the following error: “Windows was unable to calculate the Windows Experience Index because the user cancelled the assessment”. I couldn’t get around this one (yet). Maybe someone else has some ideas? Hope we can merge the information to get the GUI version of the Experience Tool working!
1. Download the WinSAT_VistaSP1_v2.zip (4,87MB) file and extract the contents of the folder of your Windows architecture to C:WindowsSystem32.
2. Click Run in the Start menu, enter regsvr32.exe PerfCenterCPL.dll and click OK.
3. Now you have the Performance Information and Tools icon in your Control Panel, but the Rate this computer button is not working…
I have an 8800GT on Standard x64. For some reason, I can’t get some advanced Aero options working like “show window previews” on the taskbar. Maximize/minimize animations are off, too. I downgraded to 169.25_forceware_winvista_64bit_english_beta and that doesn’t help.
Found the solution:

run “winsat dwm”
It’ll test your video hardware and enable the Aero option
All effects work perfectly now!
I just noticed directdraw is disabled as well as AGP texture acceleration. The troubleshooting option in advanced display settings is grayed out.
GeForce 8800GT, most recently available x64 drivers.
Arris, any updates?
FYI it was that I just hadn’t formatted and assigned the new hard drive. Everything installed perfectly after that. All Vista drivers have been 100% compatible. 😀
