While i was getting used to W8 i made a shortcut on the desktop with the command to shutdown the system.
Now i just use ALT-F4 or through the charms menu.
For those interested
Shutdown and restart
Throw them on your desktop and you're a double click away from shutting down/restarting your pc.
Restart: C \Windows\System32\shutdown.exe -r -t 00
Shutdown: C \Windows\System32\shutdown.exe -s -t 00
**Edit: Ok i see the link did exactly what i did
