Post Want a new section on "Leaving"
I thought I was done, but realized tonight that we have nothing in the Manual about the process and options for leaving that balances the one of Booting. So I am starting an outline for a Section 3.6 Leaving, and would like some outline-level help. Here is the rough structure I have ATM:

<h2>General</h2>
<p>Good words about proper procedures, etc</p>

<h2>Log out</h2>
--log out (keystroke option Ctrl-Alt-Bksp)
--save session, why
--choices (graphic)

<h2>Shutdown/Reboot</h2>
--(what to say?)
--command line alternative (root, "halt" "reboot")

<h2>Suspend</h2>
--easy to RAM (=Sleep), flaky to disk
--problems: wireless, what else

<h2>Force power off</h2>
--if total lock up
--REISUB (never works for me...)
--see also runaway program in Section 8

TIA

Under Shutdown/Reboot ...

Since Ctrl-Alt-Bksp doesn't work OOTB, you might go with ALT+SysRq+K instead. Or has that been fixed? Don't want to try it right now.

Also, you might mention the left-click-and-hold feature on the "Turn off computer" button to suspend. I only say that because I used KDE4 for quite a while before I discovered it accidentally. Or maybe I'm just slow.

Ctrl-Alt-Bksp works in B3

Didn't know that about the hold for suspend...

Actually it pops up a box with choices for suspend to disk or ram.

Okay, I wasn't sure if it had been changed, and didn't want to try it to find out just then. :smile:

I didn't either for the longest time. Triggered it by accident one day.

That works on the "Restart Computer" button too, giving you restart options, but this seems to depend on what options you may have set in GRUB.
