Is there a way to disable users' shutdown opton so they can only log off or restart?

I would like to suppress the shut down option, restricting users to either log off or restart. How can I do that?

I only know of a way to remove the shutdown option set that includes shutdown, restart, hibernate and standby. I don't know of a means by which just the shutdown option can be disabled.
