Can't turn my SuSE OFF !

Hi, I just installed SuSE 9.3 Pro. and...I just did normal install job like..saying 'yes..yes'

However, when I click green cameleon on the bottom left corner. I see only 'Log Out..', which supposed to be 'Logout "username"...' as I know.

it's ok...the real problem is that when I click the 'Log Out...' button, then I have a pop up screen like below.
End Session for "username"
-End Current Session

In normal cases, the pop up screen is expected like below.

What do you want to do next?
- Log as different user
-Turn off computer
-Restart computer

-Ok -Cancel

So......I can't turn my system off. ;-(

If I click the 'End Current Session', then I see the grey screen asking for a user name and password, which I saw already when I log in at the first place.

help me please......

1. I want to see the Turn Off Computer in the pop up screen.
2. I want to log in as a my user name automatically.

Hello man
I presume from you say that you use KDE
Check in :
cameleon button (K menu)
Control Center
KDE components
Session Manager

you should have :
(X) Offer shutdown options

Try this, I hope it will solve your problem.

As for the automatic login, you'll find the option in :
K menu
Control Center
System Administration
Login Manager

you need to be in Adminstrator Mode (click the button at the bottom and the root password)
after that go to the Convenience tab and check
(X) Enable Auto-Login
choose the user(s)
and click the Apply button.
