shut down button config. on ubuntu


when i first got ubuntu i was messing around with the configurations of every thing in the pref/administration tabs and i changed it so when you pressed the logout/shutdown button it doesn't have a shutdown or restart option. only logout, switch user, suspend, hibernate, and lock screen. i didn't do it on purpose but now i can't undo it because i don't know where the controls for it are. i have looked around for a while trying to figure out how, just surfing through the pref/administration tabs but i couldn't find it so i've been using the shut down button on the computer itself and thats been working but i figure its time to finally fix it. anyone got a suggestion?
P.S. yes i no that this should be easy

I cannot think of anything that modifies the options that get displayed in the shutdown dialog. I'd like to be able to, so I can remove the "hibernate" option for laptops which will not do this.

perhaps applications > system tools > configuration editor ?

You're right, Simon... even a search for such an option revealed 0 results.

ghostwolf29- You can try this, it should correct the problem.

Right-click the "Quit" button, and select "Remove From Panel".

Now, right-click an open area on the panel to add the "Quit" button back again. You can use the right-click menu to move it and lock it back to the panel, if necessary.

(I'm kinda curious how you removed the option in the first place.)

Cheers
