Well, they can. Using FC6.

I have fedora core 6 install on my DELL laptop.
When I press the power button (to turn off the computer) the screen turns black
and eventually turns off.
What is happening in the background (which you can see if you press a key like
[control]) is that the fc6 linux OS is shutting itself down gracefully.

So yes, you can just press the power button on the computer to turn if off just
like you would a TV.
Just make sure you use Linux.
