Hi all,

Reading through the replies from Mark Shuttleworth, Paul, Omar B., I propose
the following solution.

1. Integrate Startup Applications into the gnome control center (removal
from power cog menu)
2. Add an option to restart in the power cog menu.
3. The shutdown dialog should have a 60 second timeout which still brings
about the "undo" functionality but also removes the need to confirm it again
by just letting it countdown to zero.
4. Option to enable or disable login sound be presented in the sound
settings dialog or under user accounts (so that each user can choose to
disable or enable it)
Would someone like to go ahead and open a bug against
gnome-control-center for #4, and for #1 against gnome-session to
request that it show in System Settings? I already opened
http://pad.lv/941697 for #3.

+1 though I'm still interested in MPT's rationale for startup apps in that menu, it may be we haven't considered a use case that warrants the exposure.

Since as already been stated, adding a restart option to the system
menu would require an "are you sure"-style popup which is already
provided by the existing shut down dialog, I don't think that's
necessarily a useful improvement or has consensus.

Agreed, that's not happening. Restart is an option in the shutdown dialog, which is perfectly reasonable.

The 60 second story is pending some word from MPT, too.
