I am having difficulty a lot with shut downs. IJoseph,
click the red and white
shut down button which gives [I think] six choices
of what to do....
such as hibernate, shut down, restart, etc.
When I click the button and the choice screen comes
up, there's no
restart or shut down buttons. There's only the "Log
out, lock screen,
switch user, suspend, and hibernate" buttons.
Therefore I have to do a
sudden shut down by pushing the power button.
Why do the shut down and restart buttons not show up
and how can I get
them back and keep them?
Not a good idea to force shutdown as you describe. You
can not only lose data but corrupt the file system.
Do just what you said you were doing and choose the
first icon in the list of options, ie., log out. This
will bring you back to the login screen. From there
click the bottom right icon which will bring up
another popup menu that has "shutdown" at the bottom
of the list. Click the shutdown item and you system
will shutdown and turn off your computer. I think
that's the way it's supposed to work and the way it
works for me.
If you go to top menu bar and select System -> quit,
it works the same way. Hope that helps and good luck,
corner. Click that and see if the choice to quit is there.

The "shut down" and "restart" buttons were not there until I was told
where to turn them on. They are indeed there now. <grin> Thanks
