My apologies; I see on a clean karmic 9.10 install, that file has now
changed to: /etc/init/control-alt-delete.conf
/etc/event.d/control-alt-delete is only present on an upgraded machine
(jaunty to karmic) so appears to be depreciated in favor o
File content is the same so I tested and modified
exec /sbin/shutdown -H now "Control-Alt-Delete pressed"
saved it & gave it a try. Ctrl-Alt-Delete simply goes to the "Shut Down
the Computer" window & gives a 60 second timeout. After waiting for 60
seconds it simply shuts down. So, you can forgo trying the above. Sorry
about the noise.
