Disable "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" message
I have my Toshiba laptop set to turn off the screen while it downloads overnight. Every morning, I find the same problem: the computer has completely locked up with no pointer. I can't do anything, so I have to press and hold the power button to restart the machine. On restarting, the computer gives me the standard "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" error. Yes, I know. Windows doesn't need to tell me this. I know there was an unexpected shutdown because I shut it down, unexpectedly.
I'm not interested in fixing the problem. I've tried, and nothing I do helps. What I want is to simply eliminate the error message. Is there a way to get Windows 7 to stop telling me what I already know? It's very annoying.

I figured it out. Tell Windows to quit whining. Go into the Group Policy Editor. Under "Computer Configuration," select "All Settings". Scroll down until you will find an entry labeled "Turn off Windows Error Reporting". Right click on it and select "Edit". Tick "Enabled'. This turns off Windows error reporting.
It doesn't fix the improper shutdown issue, but it's good enough for me and the girls I go out with.
