This device has two detected power buttons and one sleep button.

$ loginctl seat-status

In this case, LNXPWRBN:00 (/dev/input/event3) is the "real", physical power button. You can verify this by inhibiting the handling of the power button

# systemd-inhibit --what=handle-power-key sleep 1h

and recording the events:

# stdbuf -o0 evemu-record /dev/input/event3 > event3

Pressing the power button should log an event.

The other detected power button has not shown any activity during testing.

See logind.conf(5) for more information on handling specific keys.
