Yeah, absolutely. Just quick mochup for global (and spacing) appearance

True, but I always think "setup" was the chosen logout/halt/reboot
toggle :-( Something like "Remember running applications"? 

Did you mean s/OK/Log out ? IMHO it isn't a good idea: yeah, you logout
when reboot/halt too, but I think better use "log out" in toggle and a
different label in confirmation button (different from "OK" too).

most but not all :-) But probably you are right
