Windows 7: Multiple actions on power button

02 Apr 2015   #1

windows 7 home premium 64 bit
Multiple actions on power button

I would like to both log off and hibernate when I press the power button, but Control panel permits only one action.
Ideally, I'd like to configure the windows"start" button to do the same.

Have you any idea how i could configure my computer to do so?

Thanks for your help.

Why both log off and hibernate? It's like a shutdown.
You can't configure the power button to do two things.

I was recently corrected in a post of mine that this does not actually do anything unless one removes the 3 volt...
