    Mac Pro Power Button
    On My MacBookPro, when I press the Power Button, I get the option of Shutting Down, Restarting, Sleeping, etc.

    On my Mac Pro, pressing the Power Button just sleeps the computer. How can I get the same options as on the MacBook?

    Uncheck "Allow power button to put computer to sleep" in the Energy Saver Pref Pane.

    Did that. Now the Mac Pro just shuts down, provided I hold it at least 5 seconds or more. No options.
