I am looking for a custom shortcut for showing power managemnt ( like ctrl + alt + delete in ubuntu 10.10 that showed some tools for shutdown, suspend , restart , ... )

I don't know which command does this. for example for showing system monitoring custom shortcut command is gnome-system-monitor. but I don't know what is for power.

Thanks, M.Varmazyar

I believe the command you are looking for is gnome-session-quit --power-off:

This is the same dialog as in 11.04, but it has been redesigned.
