RDP power buttons don't work

With a clean Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Server running GNOME, everything is working fine when I physically log into the unit. But when I RDP into it as xfce4, the Restart, Shu Down, and Suspend button are all greyed out! The only button that is available is Log Out.

I have a server with a gui version of Ubuntu installed. I have installed xrdp in order to access it from windows. I had done the same thing once before and when I connected with windows it displayed the normal gnome desktop. When I did it this time it only showed xfce. If I remove xfce than my rdp connection crashes when connecting. How do I get gnome/normal ubuntu desktop envoirment back in xrdp?

Login screen in xRDP from Windows does not accept <Enter> in password

I connect via xRDP from Win 10 to Ubuntu 20.04.3. After entering the password in the xRDP connection screen, I get the gnome session login screen. I enter the password and I can work ok. If the session locks due to timeout, next time I get the login screen it is insensitive to the keyboard so nothing happens when I hit <enter> in the password field. So I cannot use my remote session anymore.

How to remote into xfce + i3?

I followed this guide to make an xfce set up with i3 as the window manager. On the log in screen, I have to select Xubuntu (out of i3, XFCE, and Xubuntu) to log in. I've tried changing ~/.xsession to startxfce4, xubuntu-session, i3-session, but they either don't work or drop me into regular XFCE.

How do I tell xrdp that I want to remote into XFCE + i3wm instead of just XFCE?
