I've looked at the wiki article 'Shutdown Dialog' and added an alternate script (the main improvement being improved keyboard-friendliness :) ). Feel free to comment on it.

I just map Shift+Pause/break to "systemctl suspend" or "reboot" or "poweroff": awful.key({"Shift"}, "#127", function () awful.util.spawn("systemctl suspend") end),

I haven't needed a dialog yet since it would be really hard to press both Shift and Pause at the same time by accident, but that looks like a great idea for when other people need to shutdown the computer.

    Really, all you need is zenity. If you look into the docs I
    imagine it should be easy to hook up a confirmation box to a
    shutdown command with some &&s

            Is possible to create key bindings for shutting down or
            rebooting the computer?

            As a next step, it might be good to have some form of
            secondary confirmation that the user really wants to do
            this action (in case the key binding was entered
            accidentally). I guess maybe some simple popup
            window/dialog might be an easy solution? "Reboot computer?
