Barebones Xfce - shutdown and restart greyed out

So I found this great entry to help with the problem, but wouldn't you know it?

They say to put this entry into your sudoers file:
myuser myhost=/usr/local/libexec/xfsm-shutdown-helper
Well that's just geek speak for what you most likely want which is something more like this:
myuser ALL=NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/xfsm-shutdown-helper
If you do not specify NOPASSWD then you will be prompted for a password when you shutdown ... who want's that? And /usr/sbin/xfsm-shutdown-helper is the default for the 4.4.2-2 version of the xfce4-session package in debian (sid) at the time of this blog entry.

Hope that helps.

P.S. You'll get great extra credit with me if you can tell me why this link does not go to the right anchor on the page it refers to when using firefox version 2.0.0.14.
