Now, I found some files, belonging to policykit, where I can configure
that only certain users can shutdown or restart the computer.

But I'd still like to know the exact command that is used when
someone clicks on the "shutdown" or "restart" button, because I do
not know if it's still possible to stop the computer by manually sending
a dbus message message to org.freedesktop.consolekit.system.restart
or similar destinations.
