Thanks for the answer, but I knew that already. 

Having no shutdown button at all implies that the user _knows_ that he/she 
has to switch into a console by pressing CTRL_ALT_F1 and then CTRL_ALT_ESC. 
Since a windows-guy usually does not know that, he/she simply switches the 
terminal off. A correctly working shutdown button would simplify this task
