I'm amused to see that they have introduced a power-off button on the Start Screen. What's wrong with just pressing the on/off button on the computer itself?

How would you sleep using the on/off button?

Quite a few computer cases don't have an "easy to access" power button like on my Antec P180 (i.e. you need to open the front door to get to the power and reset buttons).

I switch it on by hitting a key on the keyboard too.

To sleep on a laptop you just close the lid. On a desktop sleep is unnecessary with Windows 8.1. Alternatively, set a suitable timeout so that the computer sleeps automatically.

And that is why there's a power off button on the Start screen wink
Also comes in handy for a reboot.
The Update 1 is mainly for for non-touch PC's.

Apparently you right-click over an app, and you get extra options, one of which is to close it!

Revolutionary!

There is no real reason for getting it now - Microsoft pull the "unoffically offical" update (and various source that now host it may not have left the files alone...). Wait 'til April and then let the fun begin!

Because the on/off button may not be set to switch the computer off...

Or it may not be accessible.

You definitely have aroblem if you don't know how to configure it.

I am equally bemused as to why anyone buys a computer with an inaccessible power button.

Where's the power button on an iPad?
