Is there an article on microsoft.com that describes this behavior
and/or the reasoning behind this change? I remember reading one before,
but when asked by others have been unable to find it in search. This is
a rather huge behavior change to be so lightly mentioned in
documentation. For years, users expected their devices to power off,
now that has changed with little or no fan fare. I'd love to have a
link to pass to the many people who have asked me about this.

Thanks for your time,
Rob
