Shutdown, restart menu gone

Could someone please give me some advice on Mandrake 9.1 just installed and apparently running great until i try to close down. When I first installed and clicked the logout button I had the option to restert or close down but now all I get is box with Login and Password which only takes me back to the desktop.
The only way to close down is to switch off which then means I have to go through a system check on restart.
Any help appreciated
