    Hi:

    Can't seem to figure out this one. Is there an easy way to shutdown OSX when multiple users are logged in. My wife and I are frequently both logged in and when it comes time to shutdown, it's a hassle to have to type in the admin name and click on Shutdown after already having gone through the menubar and clicked on shutdown.

    I know it's to ensure no open documents or programs are affected on the other user's login but can I get around it?

    Thanks

    if you want to kill your harddrive you can hold down the powerbutton for 4-5 seconds ;)

    Just go through the hassle (which really is barely one) because i don't think there is an easier one

    AFAIK, you will always be prompted when you're shutting down and someone else is logged in. Control+Eject will get you to the shutdown window without any mouse clicks, but if you really NEED to shut down without clicking, hold the power button for 5 seconds. Hopefully someone else knows of a hack...

    You might try going into terminal and doing a:

    shutdown -h now
