Is that actually the default in Win8? I don't have any Win8 systems currently, but the default in Server2012 is to shutdown when the power button is pushed.

Well, IMO, most of the complaints about Win8 are baseless and mostly amount to "I don't like change", so it's not that MS isn't good at listening, it's that they're good at ignoring complaints that don't matter.

They did make some late changes based on the previews, the early previews didn't have sticky corners, making all the corner actions basically impossible on multi-monitor setups - they're now improved to the point where they're better than Win7.
