Shutdown utility within Windows 8.1

Windows 8.1 includes an executable that can be used to perform a shutdown.  Under the \Windows\System32 subfolder, an executable named slidetoshutdown.exe should be present.

A shortcut can be created on either the Start screen or the desktop.  When executed, a screen will appear with a simple slider down prompt to start the shutdown process.
