+1. They should call it "fast shut down" or something and have a separate option for "full shut down" (although why you'd need full shut down, other than to restart, I'm not sure)

EDIT: The problem is that in most people's mind shut down and restart are basically synonymous - except that restart also starts it up again. For us, we can be told it's different and it's fine - but what about "average Joe" who can't figure out why his updates aren't applying? (on a related note I still find that the majority of people don't realise that hibernate is a 0 power consumption mode, but think it's more like standby)
