As I've just discovered. On my Wheezy xfce4 box I'd never got round to
enabling Shutdown and Restart for a user. It turns out installing sudo
is all I have to do. No membership of the sudo group at all, Which is
what I've seen advised. (I've also seen it recommended to be a member of
the powerdev group, but I'm not).
So it's mystifying! All users get to shutdown the machine if sudo is on
Why don't you need to be in the group sudo?

The %sudo line in /etc/sudoers is uncommented by default.
