I appreciate your input on the issue, it seems that we're pretty much on the
same page.  I think your method of dealing with an accidental shutdown best
suits the situation.

One question though...  Say I have the sysinfo or femon plugin screen up,
would this mean the plugin is Active() and would prevent a power button
shutdown?  This should not override a power button shutdown.
