What i mean by a forced shutdown is the same type as you get in Remote Desktop, where programs are forced to quit, but the system is shut down properly
There's no real difference between forcing applications to quit and waiting for shutdown than just turning off the power. I've always just held down the power button and powered down, and I still do it with my iMac.

The only thing is to let all activity cease first. You don't want to cut the power when the hard drive is still writing.
