    problems powering off

    I have studied the manual and the log off options they are showing are totally different than what I am seeing. I am using Red Hat 8.0 KDE desktop.

    When I goto main menu, log off....the only option that I get is to log off. Once I choose this, I am back to a login screen with the only option being to log back on.

    I just set up a duel boot machine with RH8 and XP home. I am new to linux, and trying to figure this out. I have already been told that I simply choose to log out and then after I log off I will be presented with the option to power off after I return to the login screen....this is not happening. I only get the option to login.

    after you log off, in the bottom corner it says shut down.

    with the new redhat 8.0 look and feel once you logout you click

    system then reboot/shutdown

    also, if you are logged in and want to reboot you can just type reboot and it will (I found that out the hard way a few years ago, when a friend told me i couldnt mess up linux so i was playing.. ) I think he was recompiling his kernel or something else...

    Quiet brain, or I\'ll stab you with a Q-tip.
