Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 458516
Power button "ask me" prompts for a log out, instead of a shutdown

Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set gnome-power-preferences to "ask me" when the power button is pressed
2. Press the power button
A screen asking about a log out appears.
A screen asking about a shutdown/hibernate/suspend appears. (And possibly a log-out or lock screen in addition to those).
This is really just the system not making much sense. The power button works alright as a log out button, it's just not what I expect from a power button, and being able to shut down with the power button is useful, especially on my laptop.
