How to remove "Suspend Computer" button in KDE?

I'm looking for a way to remove "Suspend computer" button from KDE logout window. I have ThinkPad R61 and suspend doesn't work (in fact it causes a lot of trouble - I had to reinstall grub after using it) and I want to remove the button so I don't press it accidentally. I can't find option for that :/ Another solution would be removing executing permission from binary responsible for suspending, but which file would that be?

A few ideas:

Disabling it from KDE control center in energy section should remove it (as root I think). Suspend files can vary depending the soft kde is using (not sure right now). Try s2disk s2... or just suspend.

I disabled automatic suspend, but that still allows me to do it manually from the logout screen.

I wish I had read this earlier - my system won't boot-up now[?!]. I get: mount: "could not find file system /dev/root".

Is there anyway to recover from this short of an OS re-install?
