This is a feature. It allows configurable actions that can be set in System
Settings. If Plasma were not to do this, systemd would handle the button and
perform one of the following non-interactive actions:
The default there is to do a shutdown. The old acpid.service is deprecated
and no longer used.
i do not need that feature and powerdevil at all, until short ago
powerdevil was not installed at all
You may want to configure these settings anyway, because, as you
they are relevant when Plasma is not running, e.g., in SDDM.
no i want powerdevil go away entirely
And I do not understand what you really want. You are complaining
Plasma allows a shutdown from the dialog, but when systemd performs a
shutdown directly, you say "the power button works as expected". Do you now
want shutdown to be allowed or not?
not from the GUI because if anybody does something else then logout it
was an accident and frankly until not so long ago i had the GUI
configured to only offer "logout" but as always with KDE settings get
lost over time
