Not quite. If you hold down the power button for 5-10 secs, can't remember how long it is precisely, that shuts down the system without going through the normal shutdown procedure.

It is not terrible but I would not recommend shutting your system down in that manner unless the OS is locked.

Pressing the powerbutton briefly and selecting shutdown is the same as selecting it from the menu.
