Shut down machine after log of


Hi I am seting up a web kiosk, that uses a kiosk user to start a cut down web browser. The only shortcut keys that work are the Control + Alt + Back space which logs the user out and brings back the machine to a log in screen. Actually what I would like is for the machine to shut down instead of going back to the log in screen.
Any ideas?

The kiosk is started by automatically logging in the kiosk user, and having a xsession script in their home folder that starts firefox...

while true ; do
/firefox/firefox -fullscreen
done

I dont fully understand what it is doing but it works!! Seems to start a System default session, and when i hit alt contol back space it finishes that session and gos back to the log in screen.

uucu,
If I'm not mistaken, I think it's either the Xf86config file or X.conf file (whichever you're using) that contains the line where you can control the "CTRL-ALT-Backspace" combination.
