It would be nice, if instead of simply powering off the device the power button would have the following features:

1) Short press: lock/unlock device (as is atm) 2) 2-3 second press: a dialogue to reboot or shutdown the phone 3) 7+ second press or something (long enough to avoid unintentional shutdowns): force power off

This would be elegant and remove the need for a separate app to achieve this functionality.

also think of a nice way to display 'dialogues' on Sailfish UI :)

For sure an idea which deserve some thoughts about it. I like a lot how it's done with the CyanogenMod Android distribution - even though we have the Pulley menu for some of that stuff. Whenever I click the power/standby button on CM Android about 2 seconds I get chose between stuff like Reboot, Airplane mode, Silent mode, etc... (an optional restart option on Sailfish for Alien Dalvik service would be nice too).

@Anz simply display a new page with the ability to swipe back to the current application. A kind of full screen "dialogues", anyway who care about the background on a dialogues menu?.

It should contain:



Silent mode,

Airplane mode,


Kill Alien Dalvik,

The ability to add any homemade command ;)
