I don't see how the shut-down option is any more or less tedious in the past.

Windows 7: Move mouse to lower left corner of the screen > CLICK the Start Menu > Move mouse to shutdown options > CLICK to shut down OR CLICK drop down menu > CLICK for Restart or Sleep (2 mouse motions, 2-3 clicks)

Windows 8: Move mouse to lower right corner of the screen > Move mouse to Settings charm > CLICK Settings charm > Move mouse to power icon > CLICK power icon > CLICK for Shutdown, Restart, or Sleep  (3 mouse motions, 3 clicks)

Is it really that much more difficult?

...or, heaven forbid, just hit the actual POWER switch on the box itself.

The biggest issue I have with the Windows 8 shutdown is burying it behind the "Settings" icon.   I shut down my machine regularly, and I don't think of "Settings" as being a place where routine actions ought to be.
