This new feature of either making me wait a full minute or yet a confirmation of what I have already prompted the machine to do, ie. reboot or shut down, is a brainless waste of code. If it were a little easier to "accidentally" reboot it would be a different story. But to manually open the shutdown menu and click "shutdown" or "reboot" and then have the machine make me wait or manually instruct it to proceed with the command I have already issued is just, ... well, it's just plain dumb.

It's probably derived from the same logic which "upgraded" the package manager to only allow one package selection at a time. Yet another brain fart.

I'm going to get "upgraded" right into another linux distribution if this kind of idiocy continues!

Right click the menu, select Preferences, then un-check Show confirmation dialog....
