    no probs what so ever. its old wives tale.

    Why? OS have to recover from normal problems in electricity input, otherwise we would all be using UPS with diesel or gasoline generators...

    A way to minimize CF
    (or)
    " Show desktop " , which also minimizes CF

    there are way to do it currently, but not a "button" on CF
    maybe put it next to the "connect" but not into the " fullscreen " click area.

    would also be nice to enable/disable this feature for those not wanting it in the tools/setup/xml etc ...

    just a thought.

    Download AltTabber... Great program! You can minimize it that way. Basically there is a box on your screen and it has a left and right side feature...You can set whichever side to minimize "everything" You can make the box invisible, but just remember where you place it....

    I might look into hiding it somewhere, but I don't want a visible minimize option... I know it's something technical type people want from the forums, but with Centrafuse running on hardware systems installed in peoples car and CF set to run as shell, minmize would go to a blank screen... CF is designed to be a replacement and I try to hide the fact that it runs on Windows... All non technical people that would minimize would just get confused... I might just make it a potential button action... I really just want to add plugins for everything anyone wants to do with the system... hopefully when it's all said and done there will be no reason to ever want to minimize...

    You people are nuts. Windows is constantly writing to your HDD and cacheing data that needs to be written to the HDD. If you just pull power, all data in that cache is lost, plus if the HDD was currently writing it could leave you with bad-sectors to say the least. Trust me, it's not good for the HDD to just pull power and it can lead to curruption of any open files on the HDD (incuding [and mostlikely] the OS files).

    not to mention it doesn't properly close out any of the open applications...
