"Make the power button interactive" no longer possible with GDM 3.18

I have been attempting to change my power button's behaviour from suspend to interactive as per the instructions here without success. Looking into it, it seems with Gnome 3.18 the developers removed the "button-*" configuration options: Rjackson (talk) 17:47, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

It would seem the options to change the power button, found in org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power as the power-button-action, currently allows 3 different values: nothing, suspend, and hibernate. Why anything else isn't available is beyond me. I've set it to nothing at the moment, just to avoid accidentally suspending when I mean to power down. While the bug report referenced by Rjackson describes the issue, the resolution makes this confusing, as it indicates a fix was pushed out previously. Perhaps the fix resulted in the current behaviour. CubeTheThird (talk) 06:46, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for looking into this both of you. If the OP could that the suspend/hibernate/nothing options do still work then the section can be updated accordingly. -- Chazza (talk) 15:55, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
