GDM asks for root password on shutdown/restart

Hi there,

since I upgraded from Fedora 21 -> 22 I can no longer shutdown/restart from the GDM login screen without providing the root password.

Can anyone tell me why that is and how I could correct that, so that I can shutdown/restart from GDM login screen without needing to provide the root password ?

Thx
