Fedora 16 Shutdown From Gnome Desktop


Hello Friends,

How do you shutdown using the Fedora 16 Gnome desktop? I only see a "suspend" option.

I had to execute the shutdown command from the shell prompt to shutdown.

Thank you.

You can press the Alt key to change the suspend to shutdown while the menu is displayed, or install the 'gnome-shell-extension-alternative-status-menu' package from the Add/Remove Software tool to make the shutdown option always visible.

Had to enable extension

This worked, so I now have a Power Off option without using the alt-key. However I had to enable the shell extension as per:

I used the https://extensions.gnome.org link.
