History

#1 Updated by segfault over 1 year ago

I took a look at this and found this code line which is responsible for disabling the shutdown button while the screen is locked:
https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-shell/blob/master/js/misc/systemActions.js#L331

It is hard coded into gnome-shell and not configurable, so I don't see a way to implement this other than patching gnome-shell - and I'm not sure if it's worth that effort.
