If the question is being asked by a person of a certain vintage, I can
understand the "why" of it.  Gone are the days when you simply switched
off the AC power when you were finished.
Nowadays, everything from cell phones to Smart TVs go through a shutdown
sequence.  (My TV keeps playing the last ad before it goes silent).
I remember, during the 1970s, when we were rolling out our microcomputer
business software, it took a lot of reminding the operators that you
simply didn't toggle the power switch when you were done.
I'd suggested a "soft power" switch, but was overruled by the marketing
people who thought that would only encourage customers to pull the AC plug.
