Bug Description

When I choose shutdown at then menu top-right (because I want to shutdown) my mouse pointer is initially at the right top corner of the screen.

When the new dialog opens, shutdown is at the left of the popup window.

So I have to move my mouse over "restart" to get to shutdown.

I would suggest to move shutdown (that what I wanted to do) to the right and restart (it is just an option) to the left.

Then it would be consistent with the Logout popup window, too.

See attached png. Thank you.

@Dietmar; thanks for your bug report, I can understand and appreciate your reasoning. However this change conflicts with the order of the options in the shutdown dialogue that is presented when a user presses the power button, and it would be weird for the Shutdown and Suspend options to be the opposite way around in each of these dialogues, they need to be consistent. For this reason we won't be making the change you have requested, but thanks for taking the time to report this bug ;-)

@john; thank you. your answer doesnt convince me at all. First, after pressing the power button, at the original popup window which existed before, the shutdown button was at the right! You changed that for some reason which I dont understand.
Second, I (I suppose most user) do myself press the power button very rarely at the PC. Wouldnt it be logical to design the most used shutdown dialog first and after that design the power button dialog accordingly? kind regards, dietmar

Deitmar, I see your point... But it seems that moving the shutdown button to the right doesn't get the wanted design.
FYI, this is the result we get moving both to the right:

- Full mode:
- Standard mode:

John, what do you think?

@Treviño; +1 for changing the master order to:

(from left to right)

1. lock
2. suspend
3. hibernate
4. restart
5. shutdown

This works because the order is going from the lightest to the heaviest action. If we follow this order then the small version of this dialogue will be in the order requested by Dietmar as well as the order being consistent in the different shutdown dialogues.
