shutdown/lock plasmoid is not what are you looking for?

Not exactly. ;D
It has Leave button - but I need my default action for leave = restart.
I want one - click button for TurnOff, another for LogOff, and for restart I have already ;).

You can create an icon this way, but still you are asked to set root password:
- Bring to plasma the widget Desktop if you do not have it
- Right click inside the window Desktop > Create New > Link to Application > Application > Command: shutdown .... > Advanced possibilities > Run as root

So the title of the topic should be: How to bypass root password prompt?
I don't know, but I googled a little and found that you are not alone, it looks like it is necessary to change /etc/sudoerrs file, for example here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=478936

When searching the Kubuntu Forums with the "shutdown command kde4". One of the hits is: http://kubuntuforums.net/forums/index.php?topic=3103016.0. Maybe it will help ?

Supr! :D This commands is what I need:
qdbus --system org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit /org/freedesktop/ConsoleKit/Manager org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Manager.Stop
qdbus --system org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit /org/freedesktop/ConsoleKit/Manager org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Manager.Restart
Now I am lookig for similar command for LogOut, I guess it must be something like this, but it dont work:
qdbus --system org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit /org/freedesktop/ConsoleKit/Manager org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Manager.Logout

.... And found this:
qdbus org.kde.ksmserver /KSMServer logout 0 0 0
One problem resist: I use two panels - one at bottom of screen containing task manager and system tray, an second one at the top of screen containing quick launch widget, time, etc... But I am not able to add an icon from desktop to this top panel, I can only add icon to bottom panel using app-editor.
Is it possible to add icon to top panel?

Finally! It want to reload desktop, now I have all needed icons where I want!
Thanks to all!!
