Chapter 1. Using Mac OS X > Logging Out and Shutting Down

1.7. Logging Out and Shutting Down

When you're done using your Macintosh, there are two ways to bring your session to a close: shutting down, and logging out.

Because Mac OS X is a multiple-user system and a server platform, you should choose to shut down the computer only if nobody else on your local network is using it or the services it provides. This includes both the other human users on the system, who might be logged into it remotely (see Section 7.5 in Chapter 7) or using network-shared volumes (see Section 13.7), as well as people or programs using any running network services (described in Chapter 7).
