Maybe your machine sucks.
You cannot tell me what I am wrong about when I have actually tried it on my machine. I can close the lid to my laptop and it will be off before I get it into my bag. Quick enough for me.
As for rebooting---I only reboot to install updates. Thats what...once a week?
Duhh.. that is a laptop.. the screen went off but the machine didn't yet.. if you think that hardware can be just turn off split second.. think again pal... Now you accusing my machine sucks.. very simple minded..
okay.. this is becoming just like a flame war.. never mind.. i respect anything.. OS depends on the machine and how the user use it.. it will varied accordingly.. If you are a good user with good machine, you know how it performed.. I think every benchmark in the world is stupid because not all machine can react the same way as the other even though the specs and and brand are the same... It depends a lot on how the user use it.. if you are careless, you know what would happened in the future..
Lastly, every OSes have good and bad sides.. Just take the good side and live with it and be happy, that is how i work with my Windows and Ubuntu..
