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 )
