Sorry for such a dumb question but I have seen this several times before and do not understand the difference. I have searched for an answer but all I really come up with are pages telling you how to do each one. What is the difference between this: and this The only difference I can see is the first one gives the little shut down icon and takes about 35 sec to start back up. The second one does a hard shut down (just goes to a black screen) and I never see the Apple Logo. It also, as noted, takes MUCH longer to restart (upwards of 2+ minutes). Almost like it is rebuilding the file system? Can someone explain the difference for me, pretty please....?
