if you fiddle with sudoers already the easiest way would be to do as the  
link describes:
- create a group (powerdev or so)
- add your user to it (and log out and in again to make it working)
- add the rule to sudoers

afterwards the shutdown and reboot button will be active and usable.
seems more sensible to em than re-inventing the wheel.
