Windows 7: power button log off GPO

power button log off GPO

Hi all,
I was wondering if there is a win 7/8 GPO tweak to FORCE a log off when the Power Button is pressed ?
ex. if a user is logged on and has an unsaved document, the windows will not log off, it will ask to wait.
I need to FORCE log off...

any ideas ?
thanks

Hello threeeye,

You could use OPTION FIVE or step 5 in OPTION FOUR in the tutorial below to do so with the Start Menu power button.

Power Button - Start Menu

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks for the reply, but I'm not talking about the power option in the "Start Menu", I'm talking about the actual physical power button (what action will it do when pressed)

Unless the BIOS has an option, there's not a way that I know of to change the case power button's action to log off when pressed.
