Lost Shut down option on desktop


I have recently installed Ubuntu 8.04 on a Acer Aspire One. I don't know how I did this but when I click the shutdown button on the panel or hit Control+Alt+Delete I only get the options to Hibernate or Suspend the computer and not Restart or Shut down. Does anyone know how this could have happened and what I can do to get it back? thanks

I think there is a shutdown button in the System Menu
If you go to the command line you can type "shutdown -P now" to power down 9or "shutdown -R now"

Thanks...I figured it out. There is a check box under Systems > Admin > Login that got uncheck by accident. Thank you for your help though.
