Then spend the night fixing that. I seldomly complain about a new feature, but 
if your kid is allowed to shut down the machine while you have your texts in 
another session unsaved, not to speak about artwork or anything else, the 
programs get closed and often have no document saving and restoring as 
experience shows, or kmail asking to purge all messages that are expired, 
whatever, shutting down the machine without giving all owners of running 
locked sessions the possibility to shut their session down by preventing 
anyone to shut down the machine is a *very* bad idea. If I forgot that I have 
a running session, I'm basically fscked when I found that my machine is 
powered off. *Please* put this message box up saying there are other running 
sessions that need to be closed before shutting down or rebooting the 
machine!! Other than that, I would love this feature to go in, so I would be 
very thankful if at least that would be fixed correctly to prevent family 
dramas and colleagues killing each other at work.

We're not a company, we just produce better code at less costs.
