Re: Power switch to actually turn off my computer

If tweak-tool sets org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power, then something
listens for that key to change and does something. You need to look for that
something. And that something is going to be gnome-settings-daemon, and more
precisely, its power plugin. Now go read the source, Luke!

Do you suppose that kde also manages the power switch internally?

If by "manage the power switch internally" you mean "call out to
logind via DBus", then yes, I would KDE expect to do the same
eventually (provided that they do offer an option for handling the
power key).
If you are not using GNOME (or more specifically:
gnome-settings-daemon), you should be able to set the desired action
in /etc/systemd/logind.conf(5), via the HandlePowerKey action.

So, one responder supposed that gnome listens to the power switch, and
another responder supposed that logind listens to the power switch - but
that's only when someone is logged in.

Who is responsible for the power switch when nobody is logged in at the console?
