Displaying the 3 most used action wouldn't make sense? and stoing the
less used in the "more options" area.

I propose this because on a laptop you'll prefer to use sleep/hibernate.

Also logout and switch user may be quite useless for single user
usecase: logout because why would log out, when you can just lock
screen, and switch-user because you are the only user

On a related note, why would we display "switch user" if we know that
there is only 1 user exisiting on the system?

So maybe this dialog should be different or adapt itself to use case
