Anybody else?

I forgot you could do that... keyboard shortcuts FTW! Still, there has to be a better way. Seems kind of stupid to make users hunt for a way to shut down their PC knowing that eventually they'll just give up and hit the big "no, no, don't do that!" button on the front of their PC.

The only way I have found to shutdown from the interface, is to log off and then press the little power button icon to shut it down or restart. Anyone else find a method directly form the profile?

Figured it out. Hover your mouse in the lower left hand corner till you get the new pseudo start menu.

Then select settings. The settings screen will be shown and you can click on the power button from there. Screen shot below showing this:

RE: Shut down. Move the mouse to the very bottom left hand corner of the screen. The Start Menu will appear, select "Settings". Click on it, and a green panel will open up on the right of the screen. At the bottom of this panel there are several options--selecting "Power" opens another menu pops up with the options power, sleep & shutdown. Select your option.

Hope this helps...

EDIT TO ADD: I see Grinler has posted this info...@ Grinler: In your screengrab the option to "sleep" is MIA...is this your choice (sleep disabled)?

Have you been able to get the VirtualBox Additions to install?

I tried both the 32 bit & 64 bit in VirtualBox with horrendous graphics performance...wouldn't install on VMware Player... DL'd VMware Workstation 8 (30 day trial) & it'srunning much better, tyvm!

VMware tools installed smartly...I never did figure out if the ext packs installed in V-Box or not.:blink:

Thanks, Grinler and Union_Thug. I just assumed it would be more obvious....
