If however you are using a save file (not experimenting with different flavors of Puppy) I fail to see why you have a problem. When I shutdown a message briefly flashes on screen telling me that the session was saved, but no further action on my part is required.
I do appreciate your replying. Let me explain a little more
what the problem is Im having with puppy / shutdowns / and
the savefile routine.
Its true, if I simply turn the computer off, there is no shut
down or log off... this is not recommended, but it doesnt seem
to hurt anything.
Your comment about "a brief message flashing across the screen"
at shutdown time is really what prompted me to ask about this
here... on my computer, the savefile processing requires more
like three or four minutes... really... if Im closing shop for
the night, this doesnt mean anything... but I simply want to
reboot, this is really a burden.
I'll end by mentioning that I spent several days on the Puppy
channel, asking some of the most experienced puppy users, and
virtually none of them knew or could suggest a way to avoid
this lengthly savefile operation at shutdown.
Thanks again for your replies. I do like puppy a lot and
hope it is working for you too !
