You could make a desktop file to shutdown instantly

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Shutdown NOW
Exec= dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest=org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit
/org/freedesktop/ConsoleKit/Manager org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Manager.Stop

save it to /usr/share/applications/shutdown.desktop

or type in (all one line):
dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest=org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit
/org/freedesktop/ConsoleKit/Manager org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Manager.Stop

instant shutdown.

Here is reboot (all one line):
dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest=org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit

and to be overkill here is suspend (all one line):
dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest=org.freedesktop.UPower
/org/freedesktop/UPower org.freedesktop.UPower.Suspend

I have thought about making a gdialog bash script for this... but
haven't gotten around to it yet....
