Get Out Of The Office, Now!

Remember the good old days of DOS? Once you are done with your work, you just remove your floppies, and you hit that big red button, and you are out of your office immediately.

Today, there's no longer a big red button. Instead, you search for that men item called "Shut Down", select it, and...

... well, you wait. And wait. You'll have to wait for all your applications to shut down. Your Microsoft Office. Your e-mail client. Your IM client. Your RSS client. Your iTunes. And then, you'll have to wait for all your background applications to shut down.

5 minutes later, it finally powers off.

Someone should do a study on all the lost productivity — leisure time productivity — that we lost due to the longer and longer shutdown sequences. And Steve Jobs can use that number to tout the great OS X, when it finally gets a proper hibernation feature.
