I've created a simple "Shutdown and Restart" Gadget (My first!) for Vista sidebar.

Yes, I know there are lot's about already but I wanted one that suits the Aero theme a bit more, including a semi transparent background which makes it look similar to the task bar.

I have submitted it to the Windows live gallery, it's pending approval but I couldn't wait to share it!

I hope you like it.

I love this gadget. It's by far the best looking, and possibly the most functional of all the shutdown gadgets.

I've used it in Vista for a long time, and have now installed it my new Win7 system.

However, this seems to be bugged in Windows 7, for me. The border around the buttons (which is semi-transparent i vista) is entirely transparent, and looks unnatural.

Is this only on my computer?

Kruper11,
this and any 'shutdown' gadgets do not work when used with the XP version of the sidebar.
