  1. Is this a safe shut down? I rarely shut down my computer, but instead put it into "Hibernate" mode. Could I do this same step for that?

  7. Again, since these are shortcuts, you can put them anywhere; for example, I like being able to restart/shutdown my computer from the Quicklaunch toolbar.

  8. Awesome trick. Does it also work on windows 7? It's much easier than pressing alt + f4. I just hope that it prompts the user before actually shutting down so to avoid being accidentally turning off.
