KDE/Gnome/CLI or other Window Manager? Bit more info would be needed to help you.

And that only works if you boot into a gui environment. If you boot to CLI, you have to log out before shutting down.

No, that's normal with KDE in Redhat/fedora, because those distros are gnome based and they use the gnome display manager by default. If you use kdm (the kde display manager) , then you can shutdown/reboot in KDE , without logging out.

Have you looked in the Control Centre? One of the final options (not on Lnux at the moment) gives options for allowing users to shutdown the pc. There is also one for the log out window specifically which will let you say which you want as the default - shutdown, reboot, log out.

The distro is mandrake 10.1 and I dont get a logout window. When I logout I get the login screen.

That is, I think, a "feature" of Mandrake.
