    I'm pretty clumsy, and often shuffle my computer around. Sometimes, I mistakenly hit the power button ever so slightly while gaming in Windows XP and my MPB shuts down instantly. In OS X, when the key is hit I am prompted as to if I would like to shut down or not. Is there any way to enable this sort of action in Windows XP? It's so irritating to have to reboot and stuff over and over again.

    Control Panel, Power Options. "When I press the power button....." and so forth. Just like you would do on a normal Windows machine - which is what your MBP becomes when you're booted to XP.
