Hmm, I don't know. A regular root and su won't work.
You'd either have to have a system-signed app or hack the permission system.

There is no clear info on the difference between an Android shutdown and a Linux shutdown.
Given the choice, I'd go for the Android shutdown.

Well I had a stack overflow link that shows a way to do it, but I can't post links yet. Either way, apparently there is a way with only root. The code from the link was:
Code:
try {
    Process proc = Runtime.getRuntime()
                    .exec(new String[]{ "su", "-c", "reboot -p" });
    proc.waitFor();
} catch (Exception ex) {
    ex.printStackTrace();
}
