GNOME 3 Power Manage setting

I had been ask for GNOME 3 Power manage setting question.
For power button with hiber nate.

I feel good the GNOME 3 Desktop. So I didn't spend much time to learn it.
I use gnome-tweak-tool when openSUSE 11.3 with GNOME 3.

But there was some bug when I used  it.
GNOME 3 is simple and good now.
And the power manage setting is also simple now.
Like this ..

It doesn't like the traditional way to set button behavior.  For example, button-power, button-sleep.
I use search engine to search the resolve.  Somebody use XFCE package to resolve this problem.
But I think that is not gnome package and official method to resolve it.
I find a package to resolve the problem.
That is dconf-editor package. ( Simple key-based configuration system -- Graphical Editor)

I use openSUSE, so I use zypper to check it.

# zypper search dconf

S | Name                    | Summary                                                    | Type   
i | dconf                   | Simple key-based configuration system                      | package
  | dconf-devel             | Simple key-based configuration system -- Development Files | package
  | dconf-editor            | Simple key-based configuration system -- Graphical Editor  | package

It's not install by default. So I use zypper to install it.

# zypper install dconf-editor

Setting power manage setting is very simple.
run dconf-editor command


Extend org --> gnome --> setting-daemon --> plugins --> power
And you will see some setting there.

Just click the setting you want to set.

You also could use  gsettings command to set it.

For example

#gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power button-power shutdown

enjoy it ~~

What is COSCUP?

COSCUP is the largest annual FLOSS conference organized by local
communities in Taiwan. The conference has sessions for new users,
enthusiastic promoters, coders or anyone who is interested in
cutting-edge FLOSS technologies. The goal is to create a friendly and
informative environment for people from different communities to make
friends, learn new technologies and inspire each other.

Open source software is supported by 3 groups: coders, users and
promoters. This conference is aimed at all three groups. No matter
whether you are a new user, a passionate promoter, mature developer or
anywhere in between, you are welcome at COSCUP, the Conference for
Open Source Coders, Users and Promoters!
