Windows 7: Just a little tip for shutting down XPM Applications

Just a little tip for shutting down XPM Applications

Basically, I was getting annoyed because XP Mode wasn't shutting itself down properly when I exited Applications and wasn't freeing the resources. I found a way to fix it, so I thought I'd share it with you guys as I'm sure I'm not the only person having this problem:

1.Bring the XP Application you are running into focus (click the window)
2. Press CTRL-ALT-END
3. In the window that appears click "Shut Down"

that will make XPM shut itself down properly and free the resources

Enjoy
