I assume that that means shutting down all the applications that are
currently open.

As a number of the applications, such as rekonq and Arora, and, I
think, Midori, do not provide for saving and restoring sessions, I
have to progressively (in the web browsers that do provide it) save
bookmarks sets for each window of tabs, and, in the web browsers that
do not allow that, to progressively bookmark each open tab), and I
expect that will take about a week or so, maybe a month.

Having tried to change the keyboard settings, so as to disable a
couple of keys (the three keys in the bottom left corner of the
keyboard and the caps lock key) which led to the keyboard keys setting
being stuffed up, the keyboard has lost a significant part of its
functionality, so I can not go to a console, to try to log in to a new
console session, to find whether that would trigger the making of a
new group setting active.

So, I gueess that I will have to leave it for a week or so, so that I
can progressively bookmark the open browsers windows tabs and try to
achieve an orderly system shutdown that would allow me to
progressively restore the current session, which appears to be
otherwise unobtainable.
