When powering down the frame from the HMC, there is an insufficient and often confusing process that can lead to serious issues. When power down is selected, a pop-pup is displayed that gives a user an option to confirm or cancel the process. In a multi-monitor environment (which today is a norm), you can run into a situation when the pop-pup window is displayed on a different screen and if it is missed by the user, a single Enter key could end up in a production disaster. I think this pop-pup window should be replaced and w confirmation window where the user has to type in a command - Like "Yes", or "Confirm" or a specific number generated by the HMC. The frame runs multiple environment and often PROD, QA and DEV and these system should have a very high level of protection.
