Removing shutdown menu item

On a desktop system which should always be running (it's acting as print 
server on the home network), I would like to prevent kids from shutting 
down the system. They shouldn't be able to suspend or hibernate the 
system, either.

I've figured out how to remove these actions from GDMs greeter.

But I haven't found a way to remove the shutdown item from the panel's 
menu. How do I do this?
