Try adding the shutdown command to sudoers, the source code has some
defines showing that shutdown is the only command necessary.

File : /xfce-

#if defined(__FreeBSD__) || defined(__NetBSD__) || defined(__OpenBSD__)
#define POWEROFF_CMD  "/sbin/shutdown -p now"
#define REBOOT_CMD    "/sbin/shutdown -r now"
#define POWEROFF_CMD  "/sbin/shutdown -h now"
#define REBOOT_CMD    "/sbin/shutdown -r now"
