I lied, those options aren't there
# yum install 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
Any reason why there can't be options for each one?
