I want to remove the shutdown and restart on terminal Server 2012 for all users except Administrators. I know where the remove and prevent access to shut down is but I need to make sure it does not effect administrators.

I do have the loop back policy enabled.

You have found the correct setting but what you are forgetting is the scope. If you create a GPO called no shutdown and the scope is everyone but the administrators then the administrators will still be able to shutdown the servers but everyone else will not. So in scope remove the authenticated users and add the group of users you want to prevent from shutting down the server. You can even create an AD group called no shutdown and put everyone but administrators in there and add that to the scope.
