Ctrl+Alt+Del, without login


when I start my system and I get to the login prompt, I can shutdown the machine without even login in. How can I change this so that you can only do this when logged on? I would still like the option of using it when I am logged on (CLI or X).

If you look at "man shutdown" and scroll down to "ACCESS CONTROL" you'll see a discussion about this very topic.

This won't have any effect In X though. I guess it's up to X Window or the window manager what happens when the three finger salute is issued.
