Shut Down

When you have finished working on your computer for the day, you need to shut down. Years ago, people said it was best to leave a computer on all the time, rather than turn it off and back on again, but today it's unnecessary. You will outgrow your computer long before you will turn it on and off too many times.

It's a good habit to quit all of your applications before you shut down (although the iMac will quit them for you if you forget). I explain about opening and quitting applications in Chapter 4, but if you've been following along in this book, you don't have any applications open at the moment.
