close menu: allow delaying

Bug #289673 reported by David Prieto on 2008-10-26
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-session (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Intrepid sports a new close menu. It would be cool to have an option on it, to delay the chosen option. This would allow the user to watch a movie in bed, for example, without fear of falling asleep and leaving his PC on during all night.

This already exists as a modifier for the "shutdown" command; this would just make it more accessible to the casual user.

Any comments on this?

Also, it would be cool to have a notification when the system is about to close. Someone suggested it in the Brainstorm idea ( I'm attaching a mockup.

Hi Chris,

Against what package? I thought this close menu was specific to Ubuntu.

Yes, Ubuntu ships a patch to change the session dialog, but it doesn't mean that this feature couldn't be added to the vanilla session dialog.

Alright Chris. But, sorry to repeat myself, against what package?

Well, stupid me. What package? Gnome-session obviously. I don't know what I was thinking.

Just filed the request:

Sorry Chris.
