Elipses (...) are also used in menu items when clicking on the item will
result in some sort of dialog box before any real action is actually

So if clicking the 'Turn Off Computer' were to result in a prompt giving
(for example) the option of Turning Off or Cancelling, then it should be
written 'Turn Off Computer...'.  But if clicking it immediately initiates
the shutdown process then it should have no '...'.  The dots just gives
the user a subtle hint that there will be more required to perform the
action after clicking the item.
