Ubuntu: visudo problem / NOPASSWD option does not work for commands

It is always the same:
After installing a new Linux commands like
only work with entering your password everytime (or precisely: after every reboot).
This can be changed with visudo:
export EDITOR=vi; visudo
 Inside the /etc/sudoers.conf you will see:
# User privilege specification
root    ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL

# Members of the admin group may gain root privileges
%admin ALL=(ALL) ALL
And this is the problem:
First idea is to double the line
root    ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
schroff    ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/s2disk
and do the desired changes.

BUT: This will not work!

You have to add your line at the end of the file and after you exit vi (or whatever editor you have configured) it will work...
