Re: No Shutdown button

Usually, it is a menu selction from the main menu at the bottom left, likely on the bottom right hand side, titled 'leave', and has a submenu with shutdown options. If not there, you can still shutdown safely by opening a terminal window, type in su - <enter> enter your administrative password, and then when you get to the terminal window prompt, type in (without the quotes) 'shutdown -r now' to close down and reboot, or 'shutdown -h now' to close down and power off the machine.
Alernately;
You may also right click on the taskbar, select panel options, then select add widgets, and select one of the 'menu' widgets by double clicking on it. You can identify a widget by hovering with the mouse on it, and it will pop up a description for that widget. That will set a menu onto the taskbar, and you can then select from it 'leave' and on its submenu are options to log out, restart, shutdown, etc.
If there is no taskbar, you can right click on the desktop and select 'add panel'. The panel, or 'taskbar' you want to add is the default panel, if you have no other at the time.

You also need to read about gnome 3 as none of the highlighted stuff is possible.

Yes, my apologies, I am a KDE user, although have worked with gnome in Suse, Ubuntu, and other linux distros in the past. <ctrl>+<alt>+<f1> should get you to a boot prompt also, to utilize yum to update. I removed fedora 16 gnome 3 for KDE to solve the 'signal 11' crash 'bug' last week.
