View Full Version : I think icons for shutdown and suspend are reversed
September 8th, 2008, 03:24 PM
On the main interface when you hit the exit button it shows the two options shutdown and suspend. The suspend feature has the universal icon for power (an abstraction of an light switch perhaps?), that should mean off or on. The other symbol seems like it should be suspend. IMO.. :cool:

thats a good question.
i have to say that the icons style is copied from how its done in ubuntu.
although i agree with you that the switch indeed should be power...
can you try and find some documentation regarding this issue?
thanks for the attention,

A little something from wikpedia.
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/c/cb/IEC5010_On_Off_Symbol.svg/18px-IEC5010_On_Off_Symbol.svg.png IEC 5010, the power on-off symbol (line within a circle), is used on buttons that switch a device between on and fully off states.
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/b2/IEC5009_Standby_Symbol.svg/18px-IEC5009_Standby_Symbol.svg.png IEC 5009, the standby symbol (line partially within a broken circle), indicates a sleep mode or low power state. The switch does not fully disconnect the device from its power supply. This may appear on a toggle switch opposite a power on symbol, alone on a pushbutton that places the device into a standby state, or alone on a button that switches between on and standby.
Alternatively, under IEEE 1621, this symbol simply means "power"
