I have a Windows 7 x64 desktop.
I have set the Power Options>System Settings - Define power buttons (When I press the power & sleep button) to "Do nothing", yet i can still shut down my desktop via Start>Shutdown and by pressing the physical power button.

Power and sleep buttons are managed by the hardware/BIOS and they are controlled from the operating system over an API. The available functionality may therefore differ dependent on the type and configuration of the BIOS of your computer. You may want to check your hardware manual or BIOS settings to see if anything can be done there by circumventing the operating system entirely.
