OK that is correct, I need to configure acpid, for power off.

And I will leave defaults of reboot with ctrl-alt-del

The s6-poweroff is for root user, and I have users who wish to
poweroff, and I don't want to give them sudo rights to power off the
computer. That is why I am searching for simple solution.
