    The shutdown info can be found under the following Group Policy setting:
    USER\Administrative Templates\Start Menu and Taskbar\Remove and prevent access to the Shut Down command

    First one: can be configured via power options which is a part of group policy preferences (GPP). GPP CSE (GPP client side extension) therefore has to be installed at each client. It can be deployed through wsus for example.
