Feature Request: Wanted "user is still logged in" warning on shutdown

Hello, I’m new here but I would like to make a feature request for the Ubuntu MATE desktop.

In my family, several of us use the same computer and I find that when we switch users, and one of us goes to shutdown the computer, there is no warning message to alert the user that someone else is still logged in. It would be great if you could add a feature that would warn the user that if they shut down the computer, other logged in users might loss their data.

If someone could get back to me on this request that would be great.


That is a good idea indeed.
I think the correct place for this feature request would be upstream (The MATE Desktop project), specifically here:

Thanks @ouroumov for the suggestion. I posted a request on the mate-session-manager GitHub page for the feature to be added to the MATE desktop.
