I've been running FC4 since it came out so I'm a bit embarrassed to be asking this question since I really should have found out by now. I'm still yet to find options for shut down or reboot. I've been using the 'poweroff' and 'reboot' commands from the run application dialog, but when I choose the logout option, my only choice is to logout, unlike previous versions of FC.
I'm sure I'm missing something simple. Thanks in advance.

I'm at work right now so I haven't been able to try out your suggestions, but I thought it was worth mentioning that when I installed FC4, I did have the normal options (logout, reboot, and shut down). However, after updating all packages with yum, the options disappeared.
Distribution: Fedora 18, Puppy Linux, various others
Without shutdown and reboot commands in the gnome menu, the easiest way to do those things is probably to make icons on the desktop for those commands. You could also put them on a panel()right click, choose add to panel --> custom application launcher. the commands halt and reboot should work as theyare aliased to the shutdown command shutdown -h now and shutdown -r now . you could of course specify a different time .
