You could start a term window and type:
$ sudo shutdown -h now

Subject: Difficult Shut Down

I am having difficulty a lot with shut downs.  I click the red and white
shut down button which gives [I think] six choices of what to do....   such
as hibernate, shut down, restart, etc.

When I click the button and the choice screen comes up, there's no restart
or shut down buttons.  There's only the "Log out, lock screen, switch user,
suspend, and hibernate" buttons.  Therefore I have to do a sudden shut down
by pushing the power button.

Why do the shut down and restart buttons not show up and how can I get them
back and keep them?
