I've added acpid to blfs and use shutdown as an action in config file.
In this case pc starts shutdown process even if I touch power button
less than a second.

I'd like to avoid accidental shutdown, but I can't find any way to

Does anyone know if it's possible?

What would be the other way to gracefully power off pc for non-admin users?
