Catalina Apple Menu

Has anyone been successful in removing the Shut Down option form the Apple menu in Catalina.

I was successful in greying out Sleep and removing Lock Screen and Logout.
I have even tried with SIP turned off.
defaults write /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.PowerManagement SystemPowerSettings -dict SleepDisabled -bool YES
defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow SleepDisabled -bool true
defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow ShutDownDisabled -bool true
defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow ShutDownDisabledWhileLoggedIn -bool true
defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow LogOutDisabledWhileLoggedIn -bool true
defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow DisableScreenLockImmediate -bool true

If you apply a configuration profile, you can remove Shut Down from the start menu by simply telling it not to display.

This is a user configuration, so it's possible you have to target the user you want to remove Shut Down from, but I don't recall if that's a necessity.

Configuration Profile General Settings:
b8b167796e974bddba52e676487d1674

Configuration Profile Finder Settings:

Scoped to Specific LDAP Users (Local Users would be done in the same manner):

@kacey3 Thanks for the suggestion, this is what I have trying to apply both Computer and User level to hide logout option, neither worked for me. Any input appreciated!

NVM, this worked. I did it in Computer level.

Ok, so this is my final setup that got rid of "Log out", "Shut Down", "Lock Screen" and greyed out "Sleep"
