I went looking for this topic and found this guide:

https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-858965-highlight-.html

Not only did it not work for me, when I was done with it, I found that the reboot and shutdown buttons were greyed out (they were not previously). Although that doesn't mean much because previously, when I clicked on those buttons, Xcfe asked for my root password and then told me I couldn't do it anyway.

Also, suspend and hibernate do not appear at all even though I appear to have configured my laptop correctly. Obviously, I have not, but I don't know what I'm missing.

I posted on the Xfce forums and got it solved:

http://forum.xfce.org/viewtopic.php?pid=21801#p21801

To summarise here, you need to create a power group if one does not exist, add your user to it, and create the following two files:

/etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/org.freedesktop.consolekit.pkla

Code:

[Local restart]
Identity=unix-group:power
Action=org.freedesktop.consolekit.system.restart
ResultAny=yes
ResultInactive=no
ResultActive=yes

[Local shutdown]
Identity=unix-group:power
Action=org.freedesktop.consolekit.system.stop
ResultAny=yes
ResultInactive=no
ResultActive=yes

[Local restart - multiple]
Identity=unix-group:power
Action=org.freedesktop.consolekit.system.restart-multiple-users
ResultAny=yes
ResultInactive=no
ResultActive=yes

[Local shutdown - multiple]
Identity=unix-group:power
Action=org.freedesktop.consolekit.system.stop-multiple-users
ResultAny=yes
ResultInactive=no
ResultActive=yes


/etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/org.freedesktop.upower.pkla

Code:

[Local Users]
Identity=unix-group:power
Action=org.freedesktop.upower.*
ResultAny=yes
ResultInactive=no
ResultActive=yes


This also brings up the suspend and hibernate options (kernel must be configured for this, of course).

With newer polkit version you need
