k, I'm running slackware and when I exit, i would like to not only end X, but reboot the machine. As it stands now, I exit, and go into tty1, then have to exit, sign in as root and type reboot. Its not the end of the world, but rather annoying. What can I change? I tried changing the permissions for reboot and halt to include users, but that didn't work.

Any solutions?

if you open an terminal, you can su (or use sudo) to a user with the level of permissions necessary to halt. You do not need to logout, it wiil log you out as everything changes runlevel.

Or you can type "shutdown -r now" as root in console.
