Power button shuts down computer?


Hey there everyone

I'm running Mandrake 9.1 with an acpi compatible kernel (using the acpi too). When I press the power button on my computer the OS shuts down properly and then the computer turns off. Windows xp did the same thing until I found an option that would make it so that the computer wouldn't shut down or repsond to the power button at all.

I would like to make Mandrake do the same thing that windows does right now. I want to make it so that the power button does nothing when I press it (or maybe just puts the computer to sleep but doesn't shut it down). Does anybody know how to do this?
