I bet when you looked at those little eggs, you couldn't put them "down!"

haha, you're right, chopper--the little guys are still sitting in my fridge, waiting for resolution....i like soft, three-minute eggs when i'm not having fried or scrambled. just trying to calculate the conversion time of a three minute hen's egg to that of my quail eggs.--let's see, should be somewhere around 10 to 15 seconds, hmmm....

If my 4-year-old granddaughter also can't figure out how to shut down Windows 8 OS their new OS is not going to be very popular with users.

Absolutely, if the toddlers can't figure it out, it won't be a success. Why is it I look for a child anytime I can't get my computer to work?

What about control+alt+delete? Or reading the manual?

Yes, control+alt+delete will bring up the main menu and there you can select shut down or use the Charms Menu, move the mouse cursor top right to bring it up, then select settings, then click power, then shut down

Another Aussie-ism - never heard of a Charms Menu, Kylie. The rest should work, although different versions of Windows sometimes name things differently.

for most computers, it's 5 seconds or so for a hard power shutdown.
