Var tkp: TTokenPrivileges;
    hToken : THandle;

if not OpenProcessToken( GetCurrentProcess, TOKEN_ADJUST_PRIVILEGES + TOKEN_QUERY, hToken) then
  raise Exception.Create( 'Error when opening the process token');
LookupPrivilegeValue( nil,
                      'SeShutdownPrivilege',
                      tkp.Privileges[0].Luid);
tkp.PrivilegeCount := 1;
tkp.Privileges[0].Attributes := SE_PRIVILEGE_ENABLED;
AdjustTokenPrivileges( hToken, False, tkp, 0, nil, l);

I forgot to add:
var l:dword;

and replace

ExitWindowsEx( EWX_SHUTDOWN, 0);  
with
ExitWindowsEx( EWX_REBOOT, 0);

I tested just after what I put my comment .
