The same functionality as when somebody is logged in.

The solution for this problem is for the gnome-power-manager instance in
the gdm session to handle the power button correctly. I don’t know why
it doesn’t, I’ll have a look.

I also agree with the reporter: checking for running power managers is
just a hack, and you should use ConsoleKit instead. But this won’t solve
the issue at hand, since ConsoleKit will report a session of type
LoginWindow being run.
