Can't get power button to work

System --> Preferences --> Power Management Preferences

Then click the General tab, and then set the power button to "Ask Me", and set the suspend button to "Do Nothing".

(hope that helps)

So should this config change make the reset button inoperable with Debian (I'm running Debian-Mate)?

Thats how I interpret it, suspend=reset...but even with "do nothing" as the suspend choice, the reset button still puts me in the unrecoverable sleep mode with a long or short press.

Power button, long or short press, brings up the suspend menu.

From whats been described, that doesn't sound like expected behavior. Its not a huge issue, as I seldom use the buttons with linux images anyway, but now that I'm seeing that behavior, it will bug me until I understand what should or should not be happening.

I know the power management menu is functioning, as I changed the power button option to "shutdown", and it skipped the menu and immediately shutdown, as expected.

Is there possibly some other config setting overriding the power management setting for the reset button?
