I Hate It.

When I want to log out or shut down the machine, it should take no more than two mouse clicks. One on the widget, and one on the option. The display of choices should be uncluttered and it should NOT produce any pop-ups. KShutDown fails on all accounts.

In fact, I got here while doing a google search to try to find a replacement that doesn't suck so much.

umm

What's keeping you from adding an entry for "/sbin/shutdown -h now" for your user and calling "sudo" from a kde menu entry?

If you have such a problem

If you have such a problem with it just turn off the confirmation.

For me it simple doesn't

For me it simple doesn't shut down the machine. I guess this is because I only have bits and pieces of KDE installed while using Fluxbox as window manager, but all package dependencies are met.
Right now I am using sudo shutdown but somehow giving password feels like a hazzle.
