Change the Power Button Behaviour in OS X Mavericks

By default in OS X Mavericks the power button sends the computer to sleep, to change this:

1.Copy the following file on your desktop
/System/Library/CoreServices/powerd.bundle/com.apple.SystemPowerProfileDefaults.plist

2. Open it with a text editor

3. Search for the following keys (there are several):
<key>Sleep On Power Button</key> <integer>1</integer>

4. Turn them all to 0

5. Save the file

6.Put the com.apple.SystemPowerProfileDefaults.plist file on your desktop back in:
/System/Library/CoreServices/powerd.bundle/

7. Enter your username and password when asked

8. Restart the computer
