The bug already exists for a long time (also with OpenOffice), but it seems like nobody can fix it.

Why is it not possible to shut-down the PC when LibreOffice-quickstart is active?

There is a bug report on Launchpad that includes a workaround:

  • Run gksu gedit /usr/lib/libreoffice/basis3.3/share/registry/main.xcd
  • Search for the key DocumentStoreUIEnabled in the first line and change it to false.

Have you tried that?

It should, it doesn't - that's why it's a bug. – htorque Oct 17 '11 at 5:52

As the version of this day (3.5.4), it's possible to have quick-launch enabled. It still shows a message when you turn off (or suspend or anything else) the machine though.
