Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 441631
pressing the 'Power' button offers a log out dialog
Last modified: 2008-11-26 03:26:08 EST
Description of problem:
gnome-power-manager preferences has an option that when pressing the 'Power'
button it should 'Ask me' whether to suspend, hibernate or shut down.
Instead when I press the 'Power' button it shows a dialogue window which says
"Are you sure you want to log out?" and "OK" and "Cancel" buttons.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. in gnome-power-manager preferences in the General tab set 'When the power
button is pressed:' to 'Ask me'
2. press the power button
It asks me if I am sure that I want to log out.
It should ask me whether I want to suspend, hibernate or shut down the computer.
Can we get this fixed for F9, Richard ?
Well, the gnome-session code for this has changed - see the bug
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=507393 for more details.
This is F10 material IMO.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:

from bug 453297
When I set it to shutdown without asking it just shuts down X and stops with a
console login prompt. I have to press the shutdown button a second time to
perform the shutdown.

Ignore this part, this was some other weird issue that somehow "fixed itself"
with other updates.

Does this now work correctly with rawhide?
In rawhide pressing the power button shuts down the machine even if power-manager setting requests "Ask Me" when power button pressed.

This bug has been fixed in Fedora 10.
