"alot of people think that you should be able to figgure out simpel things by your self.

if i get a question and a simpel google by cut and paste
gives the corect answer on the first link i think that people are wasting my time. some begginers tend to give better questions and they often get an answer."

No one is holding you down, preventing you from doing anything but tell them how to shut down a computer. If you don't have time for basic questions, then don't answer them. Ignore them. Your time isn't being wasted unless you decide to waste it on "RTFM" and "STFU, noob".
