Probably the biggest setback for me when I changed to Openbox was the lack of Power Off Commands such as Shutting Down and Rebooting (and suspending as well but I haven’t really solved that one yet). So I’ll share how I solved the problem in my case.

I’ve always been controling my system information through conky because I’ve configured it to tell me basically all I want to know. However there are alternatives to conky if it’s a punctual thing.
