FC5 shutdown button


Hello.. I'm a newbie here. Can anyone help me on how to shutdown Fedora Core 5 by just clicking the shutdown button on the terminal? I upgraded from RH9 to FC5. RH9 don't have this feature like the MS OS. DO FC5 have this feature? Can anyone guide me on this? Thank You..

I've found the solution.. I've tried doing this one..
I turned on the acpid service on the service configuration. Then I created a folder inside /etc/acpi/events named 'power'.

The Script that I typed is this...

event=button/power (PWR.|PBTN)
action=/sbin/poweroff


Hope if anyone would be needing this kind of config it would help... Have a great day...
