Giving shutdown rights to users on 2000 server

I just got my new computer 2 weeks ago and decided to setup my old PC as a Windows 2000 server (a test bed for future MCSE experiments :O ).  Currently, my two parents use the old PC [with 2000 server on it].  I have them setup as regular users on the server itself, but it appears that regular users cannot shut down the server (makes sense).  I don't want to make my parents power users if I don't have to, I would just like to delegate the right of shutting down the server to them.  

Possible?

In the local security policy settings you can grant the old folks accounts or the local "users" group, the right to "shut down the system".

Its security settings -> local policies -> user right assignments....

then you dont need to add them to powerusers.
