Are you tired of Mac OS X asking you if you’re sure of what you’re doing when shutting down or restarting your machine? Does it remind you of the overprotective Windows? If so, than press Alt (otherwise more known as option) when selecting the command from the apple menu. I noticed this because the three dots disappeared from the menu when pressing Alt. Will see if it avoids the pop-up window with other commands as well.

I realise most of us will use this tip rarely though. I think I’ve not restarted my G5 for over a month. (I did just now however to test the tip.) I guess that’s a sign of a stable OS, isn’t it? Can you do this on a Windows machine?
