Fedora 16 Shutdown From Gnome Desktop

Hello Friends,

How do you shutdown using the Fedora 16 Gnome desktop? I only see a "suspend" option.

I had to execute the shutdown command from the shell prompt to shutdown.

Thank you.

You can press the Alt key to change the suspend to shutdown while the menu is displayed, or install the 'gnome-shell-extension-alternative-status-menu' package from the Add/Remove Software tool to make the shutdown option always visible.
