Thank you for your advice, Ian. You guessed correctly -- 'sudo init 0' is
good enough for me and I have little knowledge about "pointy-clicky"
things.  While I can install GNOME on virtual machine (sigh) there are
also other desktop enviroments (KDE, XFCE, ...).

Is there some common way to get "pointy-clicky widget"? I assume
(correct me, if I am wrong) all desktop enviroments share some
mechanism how to invoke root-only command (shutdown) as regular user,
so there may be way to invoke just shutdown menu, without need other
parts of desktop enviroments.

More suggestions are welcome.
