      I’d like to be able to hit ESC to close the window with shutdown/pm options if I bring it up, but then don’t choose an option.

      I’ve already made some other changes to add some options, so I’m comfortable with editing the file. I just don’t know how to make it close with ESC key. Or even if it’s possible.


        Apart from clicking on the buttons in the top-right corner, I use the typical shortcut Alt+F4 (if you have re-defined the shortcuts, it may differ) to close it.


          Thanks, but using ESC is easier and more consistent for me.

          The solution I found is to make the window a Gtk.Dialog instead of a Gtk.Window. Dialogs can be closed with ESC by default.

          class mainWindow(Gtk.Window):
          class mainWindow(Gtk.Dialog):

          Since Gtk.Dialogs already have a widget on them and can only have one, you’ll also need to pack the button grid to the existing content area instead placing it directly. This means commenting out:

          # self.add(self.grid)
          and adding underneath it

                  self.content = self.get_content_area()

          The resulting window looks the same as the original, but this one can be closed with ESC.
