I have complained before about the shutdown delay, which I know some people like, but it is never a cool feature when you need to reboot while troubleshooting. While it can be bypassed, there is a nasty system beep in place of your shutdown sound clip when you do that. Whether you interrupt the 60-second delay cycle, or tweak your settings to bypass it altogether, you still get that annoying system beep directly through your computer tower speaker, which after so many years of having customizable startup AND shutdown sounds of your choice (in stereo or surround-sound), this can be more than a little annoying. Much as I know it's hard for dedicated Ubuntu fanboys to understand, this geek would get tremendous satisfaction out of hearing that Star Wars laser blaster sound which he went to the trouble of setting up for his system shutdown (take that, cyberworld!). If there is a way to fix this now, I'd appreciate hearing from anyone who knows how, but otherwise I hope this is being considered in the next upgrade version.
