Bug Description

1. If I press Alt+F1 hot-key then the Launcher appears.
2. For example I decide turn off my machine and I try to press in the Application Indicatos last button (System?).
3. But I can't do that without pressing Esc or clicking somewhere else.

Thes same for any button on App Indicators.
I don't know if it is so by design, but this is at least inconvenient or a real bug.
The version of Ubuntu is 12.04.1 LTS. All updates are installed.
Thank you.

---------------------------------------------
Desired resolution:

- When an indicator is clicked, keynav should cancel, and the item clicked on should be actioned.

This doesn't affect indicator-power; it affects Unity.

Also, this needs design input on how keynav should be disengaged in such a scenario.
