OK, as battery is good,; I guess you'r right, hunt for a missing
permission somewhere, lack of an SUID zero (root) on install of
shutdown script, or lack of /usr/local/bin in path ? something of
that nature.

I'll bow out out, & leave answering to list members more proficient
with Nut than me (I'm FreeBSD based, & not configured Nut lately &
I've a swamped To Do list).

Good luck.
