    My OSX Mountain Lion v. 10.8.3 still does not shut down using the apple icon. I always have to hold down the Power button. I'd like to have it do the right thing!

    Check the console app for messages when you try to shutdown with the menu option next time. See if there are any error messages that appear as soon as you click on the shut down option.

    I agree with B..., try a SMC reset, that usually cures a lot of problems between hardware and software. (check apple support forums or do a quick search here for instructions if you are not familiar.)
