Red Hat The Fedora team has clearly spent a lot of time trying to refine some of the smaller, but perhaps more common user interface elements in some thoughtful ways. Take, for instance, the new setting that allows you to manage power settings from the login screen. It's a small tweak but it makes shutting down simple. There's no need to login when you wake from hibernate - just shut down straight from the login screen. Similar attention to these basics can be found throughout the new release.

NEXTSTEP had shutdown options in the login screen 15 years ago... You'd think that would be a pretty basic option. Heck, even Windows lets you do that.

The new features aren't shutdown which has been supported forever but power management features like suspend and hibernate right from the login screen.
