My question looks an awful lot like this one: How can I assign Ctrl+Alt+Delete to shutdown dialog? The difference is that I am using gnome shell instead of unity and I would like the gnome shell version of this window.

The solution is the same. The only think slighlty different is how to call the settings. Go to the overview, write keyboard, choose the 'keyboard'. – gpoo Nov 19 '12 at 3:06
I don't agree. If you create a shortcut to gtk-logout-helper as suggested in that question, you get two dialogs in a row - first the gtk dialog, and than when you click "shutdown" you get a second gnome-shell dialog. How can you run the latter directly? – Robin Winslow Apr 29 '13 at 17:17
