You mean that Reboot and Cold Boot really result in 2 different
behaviours ? Then there must be something wrong with my config,
because they both do a cold boot. :-(
Anyway, using the task manager means :
1- go to the menu and select XaAES entry (3 actions),
2- go to the menu and select the task manager (2 actions) and
3- click Halt button.
When using Taskbar, one only needs to right-click the bar, click
shutdown and then depress Enter or click Shutdown - which is far
very faster (when it works ;-) ) as it needs only 3 actions
against 6 when using the TM -.
