would like a HOWTO on adding a Reboot and a shutdown

I don't follow why the Suspend option is there and the Reboot and Shutdown is not. Can anyone guide me to the code needed to add the selections. I know I can use a Terminal to shutdown or reboot but a simpler solution would be nice. I expect there are methods to fix most of what I don't like about Gnome 3 but I haven't found them yet. Is there a central place for the solutions needed to deminimalize Gnome 3? I really prefer one click control.
Thank you for reading my rant.

Wink Re: would like a HOWTO on adding a Reboot and a shutdown

You can restore the visibility of the shutdown item with a shell extension

Code:
sudo yum install gnome-shell-extensions-alternative-status-menu
Then Alt+F2 and type "r" to reload the shell and you new menu will be active

You know you can jus press the "ALT" button with the menu showing or do "ALT+F2" and type "reboot" or "shutdown"

Other good stuff - including pointers to other extensions here:
