    in this tutorial, i'll show How to enable "Slide to Shutdown" mode in Windows 8.1 preview/RTM!!! and listen, its only works with windows 8.1 preview/rtm !!!

    1- go to "C:\Windows\System32" and then find "SlideToShutDown.exe" Capture1.PNG

    2- send "SlideToShutDown.exe" to desktop as a shortcut

    3- then right click on "SlideToShutDown.exe" from desktop shortcut and go to properties.

    4- now give a your own keyboard shortcut tu,tyu.PNG to do this trick

    (now, if u want, hide that shortcut from desktop....)

    Its from Windows Phone, that's what happens when you hold the power button in, it brings up the lock screen saying "Slide to shutdown"

    Unfortunately, Tablet PC does not support "standby connected", so still I have to click or touch shortcut/taskbar icon, not like WP8, by pressing power on/off button.

    You can change the icon of the shortcut to shutdown icon (red) and it will look better.
