"systemctl reboot" as a normal user should work if Policy kit and
Systemd components are working. I don't know what is the problem but I
have seen it a couple of times: a normal user can't shut down or reboot
the machine nor put it in suspend mode. After reboot the problem is
gone. It seems that the bug has something to do Policy kit.
