Dears lets consider some child at your home on someone else who didn't have user account on ur system or on that particular OS accidentally turn on the computer or boots into the OS where he doesn't hold any account to login.

I tend to agree. Similarly, it seems that a normal user can "reboot"
from the command line, but not "poweroff". I would have thought reboot
and poweroff would be root-only.
Obviously this decision has been made for some reason but I can't quite
see it at the moment.
