I just want to kill the stupid POWEROFF key. See if this helps: Run gconf-editor (the gnome configuration editor), navigate your way into /apps/gnome-power-manager/ and look at action_power_button. The configuration editor lists various options, try giving it a value of nothing. It's a per-user setting. -- (This computer runs FC7, my others run FC4, FC5 & FC6, in case that's important to the thread.) Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
