Log Out does not shut down. Log Out is to switch users, usually.

Add the action buttons and change its property to shutdown. I.e.,

right-click panel
-> Panel
-> Add New Items

and add the action buttons.

Then right-click the action buttons -> Properties and let shutdown be the only option (unless you want more) and toggle to Action Buttons (unless you want Session Menu).
I just click the shutdown icon, and then, press enter (Shut Down) to shutdown.

With Cinnamon, I use Shelley's Shutdown Applet

Maybe there is a similar applet available to you in xfce.

Can you describe exactly what does it do on "shutdown"? By any chance did you install the "Tangerine" plugin for media sharing? I only ask because this package caused a similar behavior and I filed a bug report on it a long time ago.

An Fyi.... these issues could be related. At least it's a possibility.

Hmmm. I do this every nght and I have LM XFCE 16. Can you take a screen shot of your panel and after you click the action button? I suspect your setup is wrong.
