@dentaku:

The first post should be how to turn off your computer since that's my bro's first question, and yes, he has really high degree, I just don't want to be specific about it to avoid unnecessary generalization about him, his school, and the industry.

The bizzare thing is that the most obvious way which works - pressing the power button - has been beaten out of us over 20 years of computing. Remember this?

(Just don't hold the power button down or the processor will get shut off and you'll lose your data and you might corrupt the files in your filesystem).
