using dough cycle of bread!! : LUSENET : FAQ : One Thread

I was reading in my bread machine brochure that if you use the dough cycle, the machine beeps after the first rise and "the dough is then ready to be removed from the machine and shaped and baked." My question is...what about the punching down and the second rise?? And probably my most stupid part of the question....does EVERY yeast bread need to rise once, be punched down and rise again? What about sweet breads?? Please dont think I am totally ignorant, but I just dont make bread hardly ever!!! = ) any help would be GREATLY appreciated!! thanks tina
