3-finger salute is already a graceful shutdown ( init 6 )
power and reset switches can only be connected or not
- hitting the reset can do nothing or will take the machine
into its reset code in the bios ...
- hitting the power switch ... will power off the box immediately
or delay 5 seconds before power off .. more bios code ..
- you can't "remap" the bios code to something else ...
and if you did, its not "user friendly" since its not standard
for everybody on every pc
( all machines should behave the same way to prevent confusion )
