[SOLVED]systemctl power commands: Access denied

Hi fellow Archers. I've been searching around without luck for a while, so here we go:
The systemd power commands only works when run as root.
when I try "systemctl poweroff" or "hibernate" as my regular user, I get

Failed to issue method call: Access denied

To the best of my knowledge, I have a well functioning systemd install, no rc's, no sysvinit.
I do not run a desktop environment.
I do not have polkit, but I do have PAM.
I use SLIM as login manager.
My logind session does not appear broken:

loginctl show-session $XDG_SESSION_ID wrote:

You need polkit for this (this is also what the wiki says btw wink ).

Re: [SOLVED]systemctl power commands: Access denied

Ah well.
I thought is was just outdated, as this has worked before.
Having polkit around just for this seems wasteful, so I think I'm going to make do with editing sudoers and making a couple aliases.
But thanks anyway smile
