Hi Fritz,
You do not need sudo if you are using the policykit rule like the one I
sent.  That is the whole point of using policykit.  You can do things
that normally require sudo without it, because you are authorized to do
a certain action.  In the case of the rule I sent in my initial e-mail,
anyone in the 'users' group has the ability to shutdown/restart/suspend
without a password.  They just send the appropriate things to dbus, and
it handles the rest.

I am not entirely sure if this will fix the issue you are having or not.

I just wanted to offer an alternate solution that I use in very minimal
(no Desktop Environment like LXDE, only window managers like JWM)
installs, like on computers with too little RAM for Lubuntu to run well
(128MB is not good for Lubuntu, but works fine for JWM)
