1. Boot laptop
2. When at gdm, press "Power button"
3. Get dialogue telling me:
"Log out of this system now?
You are currently logged in as "gdm"
You will be automatically logged out in XX seconds".

Another interesting point to notice is that if I do this while another session is running, the dialog pops up in all sessions.
Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2008-10-14 00:06:34 EDT
The dialog comes from gnome-session
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2008-10-14 00:15:46 EDT
gnome-settings-daemon handles the power button, and currently calls

gnome-session-save --kill

I wonder if thats a leftover from when we had a single dialog that also had shutdown in it. Nowadays we have a separate shutdown dialog, and we should
probably call

gnome-session-save --shutdown-dialog 

instead ?
Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2008-10-15 17:15:54 EDT
I've fixed gnome-settings-daemon to call gnome-session-save --shutdown-dialog,
but it turns out that currently, gnome-power-manager handles the key and causes the logout dialog to be displayed. I hear that the key handling is going to move to X very soon, though.
Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2008-10-24 19:07:04 EDT
This was fixed in gnome-power-manager to bring up the shutdown dialog.
