Subject: Question regarding power button of Dell XPS13

Dear Linus, dear Len,

I heard that you both have a Dell XPS13. I got the “revision” 9360, and 
installed Debian Stretch/testing on it with Linux 4.8.15 and Linux 4.9-rc8.

When pressing the power button the GNOME dialog, asking what to do 
(restart, power off, …) doesn’t appear.

Neither `xev` nor `acpi_listen` show something, so I submitted ticket 
#190871 [1], and Lv already looked at it.

Just to make sure, that it is really a Linux problem, does the power 
button work for you?

Kind regards,
