I would appreciate such as some of our computers here are turned on/off on a regular basis.Chmoding gshutdown doesn't do the deed as it would still prompt out that the user needs to be the superuser to reboot or shutdown the system.

Install the package sudo. Its very easy to use. All knowledge you need to
run some root kommands with sudo as user is in: man sudo.

I have an extra symbol for gshutdown at panel, which starts it with:

save-session & sudo gshutdown
