Well noticed; I don't have it either. Rather shocked.
In that case i would modify /etc/acpi/events/powerbtn, commenting out
the powerbtn.sh and adding "action=/bin/true".
# of kernel changes.
However, if it is held down for more than ~4 seconds, it will still
power off. You may be able to add disabling from the BIOS - or as
previously suggested, remove the cable from switch to box.
