CentOS 7: Shutdown with pressing power button

Table of Contents

1 Power button action is suspend

CentOS 6’s power button action is shutdown, but CentOS 7’s power button action is suspend as below.

[ 85.247233] Freezing user space processes … (elapsed 0.001seconds) done.[ 85.249541] Freezing remaining freezable tasks … (elapsed 0.001seconds) done.[ 85.251926] Suspending console(s) (use no_console_suspend to debug)

Fedora 22’s power button action is suspend too. But Fedora 23’s power button action is shutdown again. This might be a different way with a way of using default value.

You can change power button action for each user with gsetting and gconf-editor. But you cannot change power button action before login.

In case of virtual machine, you must login to guest machine CentOS 7 for shutdown CentOS 7.

There are some discussion about this power button action like tablet and customizing default value. I think that this action should be shutdown for PC like Fedora 23.

2 Rebuild gnome-settings-daemon
