Problems logging out of KDE in mandrake 7.2

I just installed a couple days ago, I'm a complete linux newbie. I am having an intermittent problem that when I try to log out of KDE, it doesn't. Sometimes, nothing at all happens when I click logout, sometimes I get the "End KDE Session?" box, and when I click logout there, then nothing happens. It might be related to another problem I have, that when I try to open a prog (the included games especially for some reason), it will give me the little disk spinning on the taskbar, then dissapear, then maybe 10 -15 minutes later the prog will open. If I try to open them from a CL, it will sometimes give a message "Could not open socket 1601" (from memory, it's not doing it now of course). Or sometimes, nothing at all happens, it just sits, and doesn't return another prompt.
I tried finding information about it, but either it's not common or I just don't know what to search for, since I couldn't find anything related. I don't even really know what information would be helpful to you. Any suggestions?

I've got rhe same problem with Mandrake 8.1 - the screen sort of greys out and you have to hit the reset button.

You can get round it by opening a terminal window and typing

"shutdown -h now"

I'd still like to know why the logout doesn't work any more. I suppose something must've been corrupted, but I don't know what...
