Remove The Shutdown/Restart Coutdown

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.
Jaunty brought with it a handy shutdown/restart delay that helps to stop erroneous shutdowns or accidental restarts by simply introducing a countdown.

It’s a handy feature but if it is bugging you, here’s the simple solution on how to remove it: –

1. Right-click the User Switcher applet (the button you use to logout)

2. Go to Preferences
3. Uncheck “Show confirmation window”
4. Hit ‘Close’.
