Mac Shutdown is able to use 'Soft Shutdown' and 'Hard Shutdown' to shutdown your Mac. The 'Soft Shutdown' is issued at finder level and ask to all the running app to quit before shut down the Mac
The 'Hard shutdown' is issued at system level and offers a very low level of probability of having the shut down interrupted by an app refusing to quit. The ‘Hard Shutdown’ feature from release 4 of Mac Shutdown, uses the latest Apple XPC technology (the recommended way now by Apple, secure and digitally signed, to escalate privileges for sys tasks) to provide admin right actions. It allows to shutdown your Mac in a secure way, just providing admin right one time only at installation.
From version 4 Mac Shutdown can now work also as a status menu only application, always available from the menu also when in background and without showing any window to just silently waiting in the background.
