How to Use the Power Control in Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012

Prior to Windows 8, commands such as Shut down, Restart, and Sleep were housed under the Start menu. In the latest release of Windows, however, Microsoft has removed the Start menu from the desktop user interface and has included a new Power button.
