Currently the Gnome System menu contains a lot of stuff that is not

A laptop owner who are unlucky enough to have a box not supporting
suspend would probably want to remove that, to prevent the risk of being
forced to make an unclean shutdown, as a result of selecting suspend by

As a matter of fact both having "Suspend" and the current "Shut down"
item doesn't make sense as it forces the user to make the "Shall I
suspend choice" twice.

When speaking of menus, the Alacarte Menu editor should be in the
"Prefereces" menu
instead of in "Applications->Accessories".

If we have things like "Lock Screen" in the System menu, the system menu
should probably
also contain the ability to make screen shots, and to share the screen
with vino.

This is in desperate need of a usability overview.
Until that happens, is there any easy way to edit the Gnomw System meny.

I lied, those options aren't there

# yum install gconf-editor
$ gconf-editor


Look around these options, I'm digging around my self, there is disable_logout in global but that allows me to suspend my laptop still, and not logging out sucks more than shutting down so there should be some more options in there or a seperate check off for each one, not all-or-none in the options.


Any reason why there can't be options for each one?
