I guess my frustration is that I am arguing with a computer… a fruitless attempt. I can understand losing some unsaved operations and that’s something that I am willing to chance. After all is said… I want not to be second-guessed.
But I DO see your point.
My REAL frustration comes from the 'puter restarting itself once it’s off.
I’ve set the BIOS POWER OPTION to not restart if there’s a power glitch, yet it restarts once… and only once more… after it shuts off and I have to do the shutdown three-step all over again.
I never experienced this in the “other” opsys (shudder) and so far whatever mysterious quirk this 'puter has learned, it got from associating with Linux.
I ain’t gonna go back to M$…(now I have to wash my eyes in soap) … so that’s a non-happenstance. Does anyone have any experiences along this vein?
Ultimately… I want to be the master.
