Bug Description

In the current stable Ubuntu 15.04 (Vivid), if you press the laptop power button then Ubuntu presents you with a chooser with options to suspend, lock, shutdown, restart. ("Hi ... you have some open files you might want to save...") However if you're slow or were thinking about something (like I was) after about 10-20 secs Ubuntu shuts down without warning you!
