    I've just tested the theory anyway, it doesn't hide the button but it says "There are no power options available" when you click on it.

    /edit

    TLDR, practically bugger all.

    Why would you want to remove that?

    (There are ways, via the registry to both enable and disable it...)

    Just one example: we ask our pupils to never shut down the lab computers, just to sign out. They then go into sleep mode on a (short) timer. This ensures the fastest resume time, and allows us to WoL according to the lab booking system, which doesn't always work reliably if the computer has been fully shut down.

    Before we disabled this ability, they frequently shut down anyway because a) pupils don't always pay attention to instructions (shocking, I know) and b) some would do it because they knew it caused inconvenience. The lack of on-screen power button suited us just fine; now we have the situation described above where we have a button that does nothing except display a message saying "There are no power options available". It would be nice if we could hide it for pupils altogether.

    I'm having the same problem with OneDrive that you mentioned in your post, "There was a problem opening this location", did you find a resolution to this issue? regards

    Sorry this should have been a reply to Angry Technician about his post on page one.
