It's also possible that Apple sets a different default for the desktops than the laptops.

Aside: Mac desktops haven't had power buttons on the keyboards in ages.  When Apple switched from ADB (Apple Desktop Bus) to USB, they gained the ability to hot-swap keyboards, mice, etc., but the keyboard power buttons vanished.

I believe the explanation at the time was that USB specifications prohibited power-on keys.  (I do not know if the specs say "Thou shalt not …" or if they simply define USB in such a way that the necessary support for such a key is missing.)
