I'd like to make the back-end of the SlideDeck 2 plugin visible for admin users only.
Also, I'd like to remove that "Insert SlideDeck" button from the editor.

How can I do this?

Put the following in your functions.php:

if (is_admin() && ! current_user_can('install_plugins')) {
    add_action('admin_init', 'remove_slidedeck_menu_page');
    add_action('admin_footer', 'remove_slidedeck_media_button');

// remove the menu page
function remove_slidedeck_menu_page() {

// remove the button
function remove_slidedeck_media_button() {
    echo <<<JQUERY
jQuery(document).ready(function($) {

Note: I did test this. If something doesn't work for you, please report back. If it does, please come back as well (and vote up/accept). ;)

// EDIT: the menu page is now working.

// EDIT 2: the button as well.
