Logging Out

When you are finished using the computer, you can log out and leave the system running or restart or shut down the computer.

Logging Out or Switching Users

Click the main menu button on your panel and select Leave > Logout. This ends your session but leaves the system running. To start a parallel session as a different user, select Leave > Switch User instead.

Restarting or Shutting Down the Computer

Click Leave, then select one of the following options:


Logs you out of the current session, then turns off the computer.

Suspend to RAM

Pauses your current session without logging out. Your computer consumes very little power. This mode is used, if you want to save energy but want to quickly work again, if necessary.

Suspend to Disk

Suspends your session, using no power until the computer is restarted. The state of your session is preserved, however, including all applications you have running and all documents you have open.


Restarts your computer.
