If you want to shutdown your system by simply pressing the power button, do the following:
+
{{ic|logind}} handles the event from pressing the power key, and the behaviour can be configured in {{ic|/etc/systemd/logind.conf}}. See https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Systemd#ACPI_power_management for more information.
 
+
#Install the [[acpid]] package.
+
#If there is no ''hal'' in the DAEMONS array in [[rc.conf]], add ''acpid'' to the DAEMONS array.
+
#Create a file in ''/etc/acpi/events/'' named ''power'' with following content:
+
# /etc/acpi/events/power
+
# This is called when the user presses the power button
+
+
event=button/power (PWR.||PBTN)
+
action=/sbin/poweroff
+
To be able to test it, make sure the acpid daemon is started
+
 
+
If you do not have hal, start the acpid daemon yourself:
+
# /etc/rc.d/acpid start
+
 
+
Otherwise restart hal, it will take care of acpid:
+
# /etc/rc.d/hal restart
+
 
+
From now on, pressing the power button (lightly, not for a few seconds) should properly shutdown the system.
+
Note that if you have '''hibernate''' configured and working you may want to change the last line with:
+
action=/usr/sbin/hibernate
+
 
+
However, if you're using more sophisticated WM, you should use its own shutdown call, so it'd save its session etc.
+
 
+
To accomplish it in '''KDE 3''', simply change the action to:
+
''action=/opt/kde/bin/dcop --all-users --all-sessions ksmserver ksmserver logout 0 2 0''
+
 
+
For '''KDE 4''', dcop is being phased out in favour of dbus, so as well as the above you could also use:
+
''action=/usr/bin/qdbus org.kde.ksmserver /KSMServer logout 0 2 0''
+
'''''Note:''' More information on using dbus is [http://samwiseandthestereotypical.blogspot.com/2008/09/using-dbus-and-ksmserver-to-logout-and.html here].''
+
 
+
Likewise for '''XFCE4.4''' change the action line to:
+
''action=echo POWEROFF | /usr/lib/xfce4/xfsm-shutdown-helper''
+
 
+
'''''Note:''' For a more robust solution (If you are facing frequent WM crashes or working on a sacrificial PC for developing or testing your software...), you should take a look at "/usr/src/linux/Documentation/sysrq.txt", which is a kernel facility for yielding you (the user...) the CPU so that it could be used for any '''rescue''' work.''

First of all, make sure that button module is loaded (check the output of lsmod). If it is not, load it manually and set it to load at boot.

logind handles the event from pressing the power key, and the behaviour can be configured in /etc/systemd/logind.conf. See https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Systemd#ACPI_power_management for more information.
