I just uninstalled OpenSuSE 12.2 from my Sony Vaio laptop because the OS offered no "Shutdown" button on the desktop. I had to log out, and then just hold the laptop's Power button down 'til the laptop shut off.

Does Ubuntu 12.x offer such a button or similar?

    It does offer a shutdown option in the menu and you can make a desktop shortcut to shutdown your computer. – con-f-use Oct 24 '12 at 9:13

I'm pretty sure SuSE also has shutdown option somewhere.

    I just played with OpenSuSE 12.2 on my desktop. It had shutdown options in both KDE and Gnome... – rft183 Oct 23 '12 at 21:58
  • It is a common sense issue. An OS must must have a shutdown option in menu. – Anwar Oct 25 '12 at 8:33
