my /etc/inittab looks like this

Code:
# What to do at the "Three Finger Salute".
ca:12345:ctrlaltdel:/sbin/shutdown -h now


still when .xorg is running
ctrlaltdel only kills it. in a console ctrlaltdel
launches a reboot? strange!

cheers!

AFAIK that only works at the commend line.... xorg handles the keys differently.
