It's a bit hidden in "System Info" but you can still set this properly.

> One widget that I am not very fond of, is the ON/OFF slider. It has been copied from Apple's UI, I believe and it makes sense on capacitive touch screens, but on a desktop that I operate with a mouse, I find it awkward to have a widget that I have to click-grab move around and release again. Also when it is in one position and is only labeled "Off", does it mean that is it Off right now, or that I have to drag it to the off direction to actually turn it off? This was not always clear to me. I would have preferred a checkbox, which is essentially what this is. On a non-touchscreen, it just doesn't make sense to me.

Besides that you can just click it (no drag necessary) there is some
ongoing design decision about the use of the widget.

Sounds like a bug (probably fixed already). You may want to check in
