The Action Buttons panel plugin adds system action buttons to your panel. These actions include session management options such as locking the screen, logging out or switching the user, or options to hibernate, suspend, restart or shutdown your computer.
The plugin uses
xfce4-sessionto handle power actions, so it won't function properly if you use another or no session manager.
