Where is the shutdown button in Windows 8?

I can't figure out how to turn my wifes new laptop off. She turns it off with the physical power button but when she starts it up again it says it was turned off incorrectly.

it appears in the bottom left corner of the screen after you log out of your's pretty goofy that they didn't have the option to shut down right next to your log out option

One does not simply shut down Windows 8.

hover the mouse to the lower-right corner and you'll find the power options (before logout)

go to the desktop (win+d if you are in the metro interface twice) and press alt+F4.

Not trying to be rude, but this is something google would have answered much more quickly.

Just press the power button on your computer. A short press will initiate the Windows shutdown sequence. If it doesn't do that, then go to your power options and adjust the behavior of the power button.
Holding the button down will shut it down forcibly, so you don't want to do that.

Put your mouse in the top right corner of the screen, the Charms bar pops up, go to Settings, then Power, then Shut down.
You can also press WinKey+I to get to that Settings menu.

Yes, because sorting through 3,768, 249 wrong answers is so much easier than simply asking a question on a message board where most of the people are reliable.
