[Feature Request] Disable power button complitly on lock screen

I would like miui to add the option to disaible power button on lock screen because it would be very useful if the device is stolen

I am struggling with this problem and already tried to instal apps that could do that but no app can
On the best chance they can only disable the power menu but not the reeboot function of the power button
I was told that I could do it but I would have to gain root access and unlock bootloaderI think many users would like to have this function

Not needed! Imagine that in case of disabling the power button smth happens to your fingerprint sensor. Then how will the device be activated in a working state? I do not get it or...

This is really useful if device is stolen. Without this feature any anti theft and 'find device' features are in vain.

You will still have the password, and can unlock the phone that way
When you choose the fingerprint as the main unlocking way you have to choose too a password /padron/pin.

I think I have better solution.

The solution is to ASK FOR THE PASSWORD when you want to turn off, restart or enable airplane mode on. This helps enhance security while you can still use power button normally.

Please think of the after effects. Like, power button us very useful to restart the device if it gets stuck. There may be other scenarios where power button plays a vital role, other than some luxurious apps.
