Windows You can say what you will about Windows Phone and Windows 8's Metro interface (I refuse to drop that name) - it's inefficient, unpopular, cumbersome, beautiful, ugly, organised, clean, limiting - but there's one thing we can all agree on: it's unique and distinctive. CNet has published a profile of Microsoft's Albert Shum, the man behind Metro, and he highlights what I think is at the very core of Microsoft's problems in mobile right now.

WRONG SIR, You are WRONG, someone call a press conference because you are horribly horribly WRONG. I kid but I will show you why that isn't anywhere close to correct..

Why are you wrong? Simple because on Windows computers the power button can do one of several things based on manufacturer and model so you have taken what should be one of the most simple operations and you sir have made it COMPLETELY RANDOM. It can 1.- SHUT DOWN, 2.-SLEEP, 3.-HIBERNATE, 4.-HYBRID SLEEP...now do you see the problem?

So the fact that you and several other believe you should have to use a hardware fix for what is plainly a software problem just shows how badly thought out TIFKAM is, its NOT intuitive, NOT discoverable, and as your post just demonstrated takes even simple tasks and makes them worse than what came before.
