RE: Allowing any user to shutdown from gnome

Here's a thought: why don't you create a group shutdown_privileges and
allow anyone with access to the group to run a shell script like:

#! /usr/bin/bash

#wait 10 minutes before rebooting
shutdown -r -t time 10

That would be more secure then allowing everyone access to shutdown,
while at the same time allowing you to increase the number of people who
can shutdown?
