    I can confirm that issue on a desktop computer running gnome livecd (ML5).
    Both buttons are "grayed out" and cannot be selected.

    Also, "power management preferences" seems lacking some tabs/options :-?

    Ctrl+Alt+F1

    shutdown -h now

    to shut the machine off or just

    reboot

    will err...

    I will leave that up to the reader to guess.

    And not meaning to be appear patronising or funny here but if you do not
    know the above commands are you sure you should be running a beta OS?

    Why do you think "giorsat" has any problem to halt/shutdown/restart the
    machine? It clearly states that he "have to swith to console to switch off
    the computer" ;-)

    Anyway, I think we both are facing the same gnome bug here. There are some
    power management options not available and screensaver is not present under
    gnome control panel :-/

    My bad,

    I read it wrong that time.

    This is what I saw:

    > Hi. Milestone 5 seems not to enable "AND" shutdown or reboot,


    > menus on gnome on my hp pavillion dv7.


    > "H"ow I have to swith to console to
    > switch off the

    one word one letter and a comma and it all makes it completely different but
    still no excuse.

    Apologies to the OP, getting late here will go stand in corner till bed
    time.

    Confirmed as one of "most annoying bugs" for ML5:

    ***
    http://en.opensuse.org/Bugs:Most_Annoying_Bugs_11.2_dev

    - Reboot/Shutdown not possible from GNOME. Fix will be in GNOME:Factory (and
    Factory) very shortly.
