Yes, it prevents filesystem corruption, but I am not sure if it bothers to save the desktop state.

You can check the "last" logs to see if it was cleanly shut down:

$ last shutdown reboot
reboot    ~                         Sun May 21 19:04 
shutdown  ~                         Sun May 21 19:03 

If you see a "reboot" without a corresponding "shutdown" before it, the system did not shut down properly.

I never finished the integration for this branch, but...


You can save off the Raw file, and replace @SBINDIR@ with /sw/sbin or whatever:

I used to have a script that would send UDP notifications to Growl, but that was before OS X notifications made Growl mostly obsolete. I can dig that up if it is of interest.
