    Ubuntu 8.04 aks for password at shutdown

    Hi,

    Since I upgraded to (x)ubuntu 8.04 I noticed that when I want to shutdown through the menu a window pops up asking me for the password.

    It wasn't like that before.

    Does anyone know how to get rid of this? I just want my lappy to shutdown without asking for a password.

    Thanks in advance

    This is from 7.04, but it might get you closer to solving your problem:

    Thanks for your reply, I fiddled with the settings in /etc/sudoers as described but with no luck.

    I still get the password prompt, the problem just came along with the upgrade.

    Strange thing is that for the reboot option (through the startmenu) it sometimes not all the time whereas for the shutdown option (through the startmenu) it always asks for it.

    I made sure the /etc/sudoers file is ok and I also tried to put my normal user in group-id '0', but still with no luck.

    Any other ideas please?....
