Sleeping, Restarting, & Shutting Down

The Apple menu (Figure 65) offers several options that change the work state of your computer:

  • Sleep puts the computer into a state where it uses very little power. The screen goes blank and the hard disk may stop spinning.

  • Restart instructs the computer to shut down and immediately start back up.

  • Shut Down closes all open documents and programs, clears memory, and cuts power to the computer.

  • Log Out User Name closes all open documents and programs and clears memory. Your computer remains running until you or someone else logs in.
