Use irexec. Example:
1) create /etc/irexec.conf
2) put there something like this (just the stuff between the ===):
prog = irexec
button = RS_15-2116_SLEEP
config = /sbin/reboot
the config = [command] line specifies what [program] to execute when you press
the button. The button, of course, must have been defined in lircd.conf
3) put in one of your boot scripts this line:
/usr/bin/irexec -d /etc/irexec.conf
That should work.
But make sure you're not using the same button for something else (assigned to
a Mythtv button, etc).

Those are configured through mythweb. Don't remember the exact name, but
something like global shortcuts.
