Anyone knows if they got rid of the sudo mechanism for reboot/shutdown ? I never understood why you should put your password to shut down your own personal PC

You can setup sudo so that it can run specific commands for users/groups as root without prompting for a password. You could change the permissions on /sbin/halt so that normal users can use it.

Most 'proper' desktop distros don't require you to give your password to shut the computer down.
