What prompted me to suggest this was the comment
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=643457#c74 referring to
http://www.golem.de/1108/85539.html (German article). Google's German
translation isn't very readable but AFAICT it seemed to confirm the poster's
claim that there wasn't expected to be a Power Off option in 3.2.
