Close your apps before shutdown
Authored by: Steff-X on Jul 25, '02 06:09:30PM

Be warned that the shutdown command kills all open applications without any notification. As a consequence, you may lose modifications in your unsaved documents. So remember to manually close all your running applications before using shutdown.

Close your apps before shutdown

Good idea. But remember, we are logged into the console, so there is no GUI, and no GUI apps are running when you shutdown.
