Public bug report changed:
Description changed to:
In Dapper Flight 4 pressing the ACPI power button doesn't switch off
the computer as expected.
Instead it presents a modal dialog asking whether I wish to shut
This is contrary to Windows, Breezy, every other Distribution I know
and my long established expectation. If I press the power button,
ever, it is to switch it off _now_. There is no ambiguity in my
mind. It isn't easy to depress the power button without intending
The last thing I want is a dialog asking 'Didn't you want to logout
or do something else, unrelated to pressing the power button?'. If I
wanted that, I'd go to Microsoft.
