One thing that springs to mind is to intervene (put something that
intercepts what the menus usually do), so that when someone does use the
shutdown option, they get a warning in their face that this is a
multi-user machine, and they should just log-out, instead, unless they
really need to turn off the box.  Then give them appropriate choices
(logout, reboot, shutdown).
