RHEL 6 upstart and control-alt-delete.conf

upstart init shutdown
I am trying to stop a control-alt-delete keypress from rebooting my RHEL 6 linux desktop.  I have modified
/etc/init/control-alt-delete.conf to not do that, but
entering CAD first puts up a splash-screen that says

"This system with automatically shutdown  in 60 seconds" with buttons for either "Hibernate"; "Restart
"; "Cancel" or "Shutdown"

How and where do I disable this as well??

My problem is that my RHEL 6 desktop is a Linux guest under VMWare Workstation, and sometimes the screens timeout and lock and I can't get them
back to the Login prompt box -- but I don't want
to inadvertently reboot the Linux guest when I am poking keys.  My Windows host is setup to timeout
and lock, and require the control-alt-delete to log back on.

    By default /etc/inittab is set to shutdown / reboot in response to a ctrl-alt-del key combination used at the console. To completely disable this try to comment out the following line in the same file by putting a hash mark (#) in front of it: ca::ctrlaltdel:/sbin/shutdown -t3 -r nowIt is best to read this article to know more:
