Navigation on KDE

I feel very stupid, 20 years ago I was a Unix 5 system admin at a Xerox plant using Sun systems and then Database admin at American Airline for Dec and HP versions of Unix. I have just brought up PCLinuxOS running from the DVD on a laptop and I could not even figure out how to shut down the system without tuning off the power. Any ideas of a good guide?

and is in the lower left corner just like [start]

To shutdown from within KDE, click the "Leave" item. It will present you with choices to log out, reboot, etc.

In any desktop environment or window manager, you can also open a terminal and, as root, issue the command

shutdown now -h   <--- or "reboot" if you wish
