Do you have a Windows Security option?
You can add the shutdown by using the local policy settings.

Start > run > MMC add shaping and select group policy and then local

Go to start run. Type in gpedit.msc on the server. Under security you should see user rights . You should find an option that says shutdown local server. Make sure the correct groups or users are listed.

Log out and log back in and you shoold me able to shut it down as the user
