  1. Can't Turn Off Computer From Menu


    When I select "power" from the start menu to turn off my computer, it does not respond. It acts as if I did not actually click it. I have had to turn off my computer via my hardware for the past several days now.

    By extension, I cannot reset or put it to sleep as these options are also behind the "power" option on the start menu.

    :)

    Feature suggestion: Add right-click menu

    Suggestion: Please add a Windows 7 Jump-List and/or right-click menu to the GPU-Z icon in the Windows taskbar. Possible menus in it would be "Exit" and "About GPU-Z...".
    Maybe also "Switch to tab 1/Switch to tab 2/Switch to videocard 1/Switch to videocard 2" too.
    Examples of programs that have such menus are ICQ, Skype, AIM.

    NOTE: It seems for a right-click menu, Windows 7 is not needed - it works on WinXP and Vista too.
    But even a Windows 7 Jump-list may be good enough.
    What do you think?
