what about doing it the way KDE does shutdown. (See attached screenshot):
One button per option, making it clear what the button does.
This once also was one button and n checkboxes.
(IIRC this was changed, when with suspend yet another form of "shutdown"
came up)

IHMO, something along this line, would be unambiguous.
