Replying to dubs@…:
I couldn't easily find a NIST 800-53 security control for this but this is an accessibility setting, restricting easy access to the mentioned functions. Yes, you can always shut down the computer if you have access to the power button but this shuts down everything instead of giving someone the ability to restart the computer. Shutting it down and starting it up could do the same thing but not always. Government IT managers want to limit the easy methods of shutting down and restarting to keep honest people honest. Of course an attacker could simply unplug the computer to shut it down.
