I have read this answer Will Unity have a keyboard shortcut for accessing the "Session Menu" that appears on the panel?, but it doesn't work.

Pressing F10 and using arrow keys only navigates me through the application's panel menu. I can find no way to access the Session Menu or other Indicator menus with the keyboard. Is there a keyboard shortcut for accessing the session menu so that I can shutdown and log off without using the mouse?
