10.5: Remove Shut Down from the Apple menu
Authored by: bud25 on Jun 13, '12 08:25:58PM

First off you will have to locate the StandardMenus.nib in /System/Library/Frameworks/Carbon.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/HIToolbox.framework/Versions/A/Resources/English.lproj/StandardMenus.nib then right click and show package contents

Make a copy of the objects.xib file before you modify!!!!! it's not my problem if you don't do this but it may make your changes irreversible if you don't

Then open objects.xib with any text editor and search for shut down and replace the 'rsdn' in <ostype name="command">rsdn</ostype> with ether 'logo' to log off someone trying to shut down or 'slep' to make the the computer sleep instead

Save the .xib file then wait 15 seconds and then restart your computer via the holding power button then pressing it after the light near it goes out and log in and the changes have been applied
