SUSE 9.3 by default allows Everybody to shutdown when logged on locally and only Root to shutdown when connected remotely.
This is as it should be. If a user has physical access to a machine, it's much better for them to to be able to shutdown normally should they have the desire rather than hitting the big red switch and corrupting the filesystem. After all, you have no security at all if somebody has physical access to your machine.
