Kde 3.1

I am running Mandrake 9.1 on a Gateway laptop. I am also using KDE 3.1.

My problem is using KDE to shutdown my computer. Each I use KDE to shutdown my laptop, the computer freezes up and the screen turns blue.

I have to turn my computer off in order to shut down. Then of course, when I restart my laptop, it has to make a bunch of corrections before it boots back into Linux.

Any suggestions on what I can do to correct this problem?

You could try login out first to see what happens or kill the X server (press ctrl + alt + backspace). Then, in the command line try typing (as root)

shutdown -h now

Yeah, I know how to do this.

I was wondering, however, if KDE has a configuration file or something that I could modify in order to make KDE work the way it was intended.
