Generally, these options only appear when using KDM instead of GDM. The
best way I can think of to sort this is to use KDM instead of GDM if
you're not already
If you are using KDM (or might be worth a try anyway!), the following
Hit Alt + F2 to bring up the run dialog, and then run "kcontrol"
Expand "System Administration" and goto "Login Manager"
Make sure that you have "Allow Shutdown Local:" set to "Everybody" (you
will need to click "Administrator Mode" to change these settings if
they're not correct.
This should hopefully allow you to shutdown your system. Not a user of
Suse myself, so not too sure whether it uses GDM by default, but the
above are the things that I'd check first.
