With GNOME 3.2 though you have to not just mouse over to the appropriate spot, you'll also need to press the alt key to turn that 'suspend' to shutdown. This is easier!?
Mint, however, includes numerous GNOME 3.2 shell extensions that forces the GNOME 3.2 shell to act more like most users would expect. In the case of 'fixing' Shutdown you can use the Shutdown Menu Extension to make GNOME 3.2's shutdown
MATE, as you would expect, uses the old shutdown routine.
