This has already been discussed in the lists before. If a person has 
physical access to the system, he can always turn it off or set your 
system on fire, so merely controlling the ability to turn off or reboot 
the system doesnt provide any real security and is a hiderance to 
getting work done. This is by no means a blocker bug that needs to be 
dealt with one week before a release anyway.
