fc9: gnome-power-manager only shows logout-question when pressing power-button

Hi,

i've updated from fedora8 to fedora9 on my machines. this leaded to many many glitches (its somewhat awkward, when you tell your wind*ws-using buddies about "with linux everything is better" and "updates are much simpler because of the package management system" and so on, and after that, you tell them about the upgrade process from f8 to f9, btw) but most things are fixed by now... one marginal but annoying problem is the following:

on my notebook, after pressing the power-button (normal gnome-session as normal user), a dialog from gnome-power-manager appears. thats good. but: it only asks me "Are you sure you want to log out?", while i want to get the choice between logout/suspend/hibernate/shutdown. whats the problem here?

by using the menu "System">"Shut Down..." i get the desired behaviour and everything works fine here. but i want to use my power button for it ^^

thx a lot

Under the Preferences menu you can select "Power Management" and configure the behaviour of the power button.

Yes, i know this option. There is a setting "General">"When the power button is pressed". It is set to "Ask me", which should be the right choice here. okay, the system actually ask me something. but it only ask, whether i want to logout or not

PS: is it possible, that some old configuration stuff from fc8 disturb the normal operation here? is it save to remove all configuration from gnome-power-manager in gconf? or will that lead to a totally broken power management system?

Nope, I just tried and I see that too. I'd report a bug at bugzilla.redhat.com.
