How to disable hibernate and shutdown buttons in Gnome


Description:

The suspend and hibernate features of Linux can be unreliable.  To prevent this feature from being used accidentally, the suspend and hibernate buttons can be disabled in Gnome.

Tested Distributions:

Fedora 9

Fedora 10

CentOS 5/RHEL 5

Instructions:

1) As root, make sure the gconf-editor package is installed:

# yum -y install gconf-editor

2) Run the gconf-editor program:

Applications->System Tools->Configuration Editor

3) Navigate to:

Fedora

apps->gnome-power-manager->general

CentOS / RHEL

apps->gnome-power-manager

4) Uncheck:

can_suspend

The next time Shut Down is selected from the menu, these options will no longer be present.
