This is the case on Windows 9X and ME systems. Win2K/XP however, don't have "powerprof" entries. More than likely it's probably an entry to load device driver helper apps (e.g. NVidia, ATI, etc.) or some other program.
If you view your systems Startup configuration in Microsoft's System Configuration Utility (access from Start > Run, type msconfig in the Open box and press OK), you may notice two entries for Power Management. Both listed as Rundll32.exe powerprof.dll,LoadCurrentPwrScheme.

That depends... For example, if you had an NVidia card, removing the CPL driver preloader could possibly disable the NVidia display control panel. BTW, what are you trying to shutdown? Would help if you posted it.
o ok thanks alot..., so no problem if i shut down either one?
