Sorry, I meant "power.conf" in my original post, not "power.sh".

Yes, and that works fine, *if* the user is logged in. But what about when
the workstation is sitting there at the login window? At that point, when
the action from power.conf is taken, there is no power manager, so it does
the shutdown. 

I'm wanting to get a prompt in that situation, too.
