Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-session

Some programs which inhibit gnome power manager from shutting down appear not to supply sufficient information.

Screenshot attached as an example

The only information I am given in the dialog is:

A program is still running:

This problem shows up regularly on my computer as well (Ubuntu 10.10).

It would help a lot if this dialogue would allow the user to find out at least the name or the PID of the program blocking it. Now it just tells me that something is blocking the shutdown process, but it won't tell me what, or what to do about it.

Thanks for the report, it has been some time without any response or feedback in this bug report and we are wondering if this is still an issue for you with the latest release of Ubuntu the Natty Narwhal, May you please test with that version and comment back if you're still having or not the issue? Please have a look at to know how to install that version. Thanks in advance and sorry for the late response.
