but from a terminal /sbin/reboot,poweroff,shutdown should all work regardless, whether the user has rights to use them (or sudo /sbin/shutdown should work if your user belongs to wheel group) it has to do with /etc/group and/or policy kit.
Could it be that dbus also in not running properly along with ck? In Obarun dbus must run for the entire system as root and as user for plasma stuff to work. How it can be achieved here so plasma functions can be completed I wouldn't know. I'd never use it myself.
