Does changing "Power & sleep button settings" only apply to laptops?

Hi all,

I have a Windows 7 x64 desktop.

I have set the Power Options>System Settings - Define power buttons (When I press the power & sleep button) to "Do nothing", yet i can still shut down my desktop via Start>Shutdown and by pressing the physical power button.

What gives?

Check the BIOS, there is probably an "instant off" or 4 sec delay option for when you press the power button while the PC is on.
