Equally true: Pressing and holding the power button on your mac for 3 to 5 seconds will immediately turn it off without the tedious process of shutting it down.

Rebooting in this manner does not give applications run by the background user any notification that the system is shutting down. This may result in loss of data, will definitely not give you a chance to save changes, and so on.
