I'm trying to set a local policy such that I can allow a user to reboot a
system, but not shut it down.  It's in a conference room and we don't want
anyone to shut a system down when they leave, but we want them to have the
ability to reboot cleanly if necessary.  

Using group policies, I can remove the shutdown button & access to shutdown,
but when I put a reboot Icon on the desktop with a shortcut pointing to
(shutdown.exe -r), it replies:

    The operation completed successfully.
    A required privilege is not held by the client.

The "power users" group has rights to shutdown the system & cleared the
local policies to "not configured".  I wiped the profile too with the same
results... RSOP snapin says not configured as well.

Anyone else have any ideas?
