kdm shutdown- other sessions


Hello. My parents make me quickly turn off my comp every night, which isn't a problem, just hit kickoff->shutdown. But the thing is, when I have tty2 open to run a console session, or if someone is on by ssh, KDE (4.3.2) makes a big show of logging off, but when it does log off, I have to hit a dialog (these users are still logged on). I was wondering if I could just turn that message off. If so, how?

That gets harder when people are logged on over ssh.

I could do that, but I would prefer to have a shutdown button that worked the way it was designed.

That I can understand. I just intended to enable you to comply with your parent's directive .

What is the command then, which is coded as action of your "kickoff->shutdown" button?
