Disable Ctrl+Alt+Delete

Posted on Sunday March 13, 2016 / by Eric Potvin

You don't want to reboot your server if you accidentally hit the CTRL+ALT+DELETE key combo.

To disable the reboot action, edit the control-alt-delete.conf file:

sudo vi /etc/init/control-alt-delete.conf

and delete or comment out the following line:

#exec shutdown -r now "Control-Alt-Delete pressed"
