What manager are you using for your personal
desktop? KDE, GNOME, XFCE, .... ?

The logout behaviour seems to be in charge of the
desktop manager, but I'm not sure. On the XFCE
mailinglist I was told that XFCE checks sudo
configuration first, and next checks with the
HAL configuration. For finding the solution,
they delegated me back to the Fedora list....

So, you may say "go to XFCE list for this issue".
However, in order to reboot the machine as a
regular user, somehow there should be a configuration
in Fedora that allows that.
XFCE by itself cannot overrule such a configuration;
OK, it may try, but I want Fedora to not allow
a regular user to take the machine down....
