Task manager no shutdown? windows 7 hung

My windows 7 dell laptop hung on an application, no responsive desktop, no hitting start menu - nothing. I went to task manager and found NO Shutdown Option tab - I'm use to xp which had options under Shutdown, like restart, etc.

So how do you shut down windows safely? I had to hold the power button until it turned off. On restart of course I got the dos window "windows did not shut down properly. Do you want to start in safe mode, or hit enter for the highlighted start windows normally.

Why would MS remove shutdown options from the task manager - really stupid!

thanks

    Usually you can just press the power button down once and it will shut down correctly, at least every computer ive had you can do that..also... I would run a virus/malware scan if you havent already.
