    Is there a keyboard shortcut, or can I create one to log off a user? I tried "Wizmo" but it won't work in Win 7.

    Wizmo definitely does work in Windows 7. At least for Standby.

    Are you getting the UAC window asking if you want to let the program change your pc? There is a way to disable the UAC without disabling it for all programs by creating an elevated program shortcut without UAC prompt:

    Create elevated program shortcut

    Maybe this will help.

    I know this isn't exact;y what you are looking for, but I have created shortcuts on my desktop for shutdown, log off, restart and sleep, cutting down on the number of clicks to do these commands. A procedure is located here.

    I'm not sure how to convert these shortcuts to keyboard combinations, but will look around to see if a method exists that I can find. I'll repost if so.

    I should have qualified that Wizmo DOES work, just not to log off. Many thanks to Ted: exactly what I was looking for.

    Just out of curiosity: Which of Ted's two solutions did you use?

    The first. It's essentially the same solution as "wizmo".

    Just for the record, today I got around to trying Wizmo logoff and Wizmo shutdown. Both worked just fine. (Home Premium.)

    Glad you found a solution. Personally, I use the Shutdown desktop gadget available from the Microsoft Windows Live site to shut down, restart or lock my computer. It's the bottom gadget in the attached graphic. I downloaded it for Vista and found it works equally as well for Windows 7.

    I tend not to use gagets at all, that's why creating the desktop shortcuts works best for me. It saves a couple of clicks each time I do any of these 4 operations (sleep, logoff,shutdown or restart) For some reason I am of the mind that the gadgets consume some resources that I prefer using elsewhere. Maybe I'm just paranoid, or soft between the ears!!!

    I'm having fun adding different things to my Win 7 machine that I've not used previously. This is the first "gadget" per se that I've tried. I remember when I first got my Win 95 machine that I had a Coca Cola shortcut on my desktop that opened the CD player and found that I just had to click one icon and poof!!! So I associate this shut-down gadget in the same category

    Using gadgets is a personal choice based on individual needs so no, I don't think you're paranoid. While some gadgets may be resource hogs, I find that the few I have installed are not of that variety. Back when I had XP installed I used your method (shortcuts) to shutdown and restart my computer.
