Shutting down the computer

When you're in the Finder, you shouldn't switch off the computer's power.

Instead, you use the Shut Down command, which quits the Finder and prepares the computer to be switched off.

Follow these steps to shut down your Apple IIGS:

1. Choose Shut Down from the Special menu.
You'll see the Finder Shut Down Options dialog box.

Your startup drive ejects the system disk, and a message appears on the screen indicating that it's safe to switch off the Apple IIGS.
