Bug Description

According to the Universal Power Symbols [1] the actual shutdown icon in unity is the standby symbol, not the power-off one.
The right icon would be a simple circle (0 from the binary system).

To be honest, on looking at XFCE, Android, KDE all of them use the currently used icon as the shutdown icon. I do not see the reason to change it now.

Marking "won't fix" because the shutdown symbol we have used is actually the correct symbol according to IEEE 1621

And more importantly if we replaced the symbol with a "0" most users would not understand what the means. Accepted common knowledge and IEEE 1621 trumps IEC 5008 in this case I'm afraid.
