Shutting down dows not always work. it is frought with problems. it frequently fails on my machine because certain programs crash during shutdown.
something that *always* seems to work is hibernation (except on compaq laptops where function keys "quickkeys" are broken, there a shutdown is fine). it is also preferable in some cases.
There are a lot of times when I will have a multi-gigabyte upload in process over several days or overnight, and I want the machine to hibernate itself after the queue is done.
I don't like shutting the machine down. I have a lot of apps I like to keep running and files I like to keep open (as a developer and a multitasker).
different things for different situations.
Hibernation also applies to Linux, if Filezilla ever is available for linux (or mac?).
