When I select shutdown in the top right corner, I get an extra question in a new window in the middle of the screen with a big button to shut down.

How can I directly shut down Ubuntu 13.10, without extra question?

Open a terminal and run gsettings set com.canonical.indicator.session suppress-logout-restart-shutdown true. This will disable the dialog.
