Does anybody know if the Power Button on the front of this appliance can be disabled to avoid accidental pushing and turning the system off?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Cant say this is something that will be supported, nor have I tested it, but...here's something that might get you through it.
# Associated Files:
This could also be reverted after an upgrade.
My first attempt failed at getting it to work. I replaced the power.sh default file by power-button-ignore.sh:
#will ignore power buttom presses but will log if pressed
logger "Power button was pressed"
After restarting ACPI service, it still gracefully shutdown. Could this be related to what the original powerconf says in COMMENT:
# ACPID config to power down machine if powerbutton is pressed, but only if
# no gnome-power-manager is running
Any chance we can disable that power gnome feature to allow the workaround to work? Is this somehting doable?
