Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 554177
Shutdown & Reboot buttons missing from the GNOME "Shut Down" dialog box.

Description of problem:
After upgrading from F11 to F12, when I select "Shut Down..." from the main GNOME menu, the dialog box that appears is missing the Shutdown & Reboot options. I only have the Suspend, Hibernate & Cancel buttons. Also, on the GDM login screen, the Shutdown & Reboot options do not work. I am not sure where to classify this, so I will start with GNOME Power Manager. I don't know if it is related, but I also see "Authorization Failed" dialogue boxes popping up several times a day while logged in.
This problem occurs on my laptop too, but only when I set the machine in to hibernation and it comes back to live again.
Fedora 14 Beta
Confirmed on F14 gold. After higernate=resume cycle, I'm able to logoff only. The option for poweroff, reboot, suspend and hibernate are gone.
It seems, that the internal logic of this program is broken in gnome-power-manager-2.32.0-3.fc14.x86_64.
After resume from hibernation, bad thing happened. The applet in main menu does not show the possibility to poweroff or reboot, just logoff. I tried to manually check the possibility of hibernation and suspend with pm-utils and they reported that the machine is able to do so. I tried to manually hibernate by pm-hibernate command and it worked too.
Even I have "show the dialog" hooked to power button, the machine simply power off itself with no dialog popping up (after one hybernation-poweron cycle).
This might be fixed by now.
Should we close this bug?
I don't use F14 any more. Also I don't use Gnome3. But IIRC there was similar problem that should go to a new bugreport. So closing.
