The video shows how the clicks do nothing in Fedora 39.

Description of problem:

I use Fedora 38 and 39 with Gnome on two computers (both made by Lenovo), but I used to have the same issue in Fedora’s previous iterations. When I click on the shutdown button in Gnome’s upper panel and, next, choose to restart, power-off or log-out, nothing happens. The corresponding dialog does not appear. But if I repeat the clicks, the dialog does appear.

This issue is quite stable, it is always there.

There is at least one more user having the same issue: https://discussion.fedoraproject.org/t/two-attempts-needed-to-logout-reboot-shutdown-in-gnome/95116

It may be important: both me and the other user who reported the issue use disk encryption. My /home and / are ext4 partitions encrypted with LUKS/LVM.

This component is maintained by the GNOME project. Issues with it should be reported directly to GNOME at https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/.

This issue should only be kept open if it:

1. Relates to Fedora packaging or integration with other Fedora components
2. Is required for Fedora release processes, such as blocker bugs and freeze exceptions

If this issue isn't needed for either of these two reasons, please:

 * create an issue with GNOME
 * add a link to the GNOME issue here
 * close this issue as CLOSED/UPSTREAM

Thank you!
