    Default Prevent users from shutting down

    I have a desktop that I have been using as a terminal sever, I have all the file permissions and applications I wanted users to access ready to do.

    However, I want to prevent users from being able to shutdown the machine. I had a user shutdown the machine and as a result prevented people form using the machine for a whole weekend.

    any ideas?

    Yast: Security and Users: Local Security. There is an option to lock
    down shutdown to just 'root'. You can also have the system ignore
    Ctrl+Alt+Del which is nice most of the time. Finally there is a setting
    so you cannot shutdown from the GUI either.

    Good luck.
