I mentioned that I created the /etc/sysconfig/desktop file as
suggested at the mentioned thread.

I built that machine for another person, which knows nothing about
computers, and I wanted it to run everything default. I have already
deployed the machine without the shutdown.

Actually the lack of the shutdown is not a big deal since one just
logout and hit the power button and the machine will safely power off
by itself, if Fedora is configured to do that.
