Big bug with shutdown

I have a fresh install of Linux Mint KDE 14.
My first surprise is that I can not simply shutdown the system by clicking on the button "power off" : I have just two option : "suspend to RAM" or "suspend to disk". But where is the normal shutdown !?!

And the bug is : when I choose "shutdown" and wait the countdown, then it stops and never power on at all (neither the Bios is unreachable !). I fix temporary the problem when I put off the RAM and put it again...

So now I have to open a terminal and write shutdown -h now" to power off.

What can I do ?

I just upgraded from Mint 13 KDE to Mint 14 KDE, and I am getting the same thing two boxes [Suspend to Ram and Suspend to Disc]. At this time, I am simply letting the timer count down to "0", at which point the system does shut down. Hopefully, someone will post a fix for this soon.
Slainte,

a (not great, but servicable) fix to try is just make an executable file with the shutdown command in it.
