True. Mine is behind two 30" displays and takes a good reach. I never shut my PC off though, unless I'm going away for a few days. On my three laptops, I just close the lid. On my Surface, I either close the cover, or hit the power button on the top.
Those of us with giant desktops just aren't the norm anymore, though. It's basically reserved really serious gamers with multiple video cards, and people like us who do things with other specialized hardware.
Many of the consumers who want something bigger than a laptop are going with all-in-one PCs, and those typically have power buttons on the display.
I used to see keyboards that had power/shutdown buttons on them
. Haven't seen that in a while, but maybe it'll catch back on with the Windows 8 changes
Anyway, just hoping to shed a little light on it.
