View Full Version : [kubuntu] Mult-confirmation for shutdown/logout

Using KDE 4 and for the most part, I love it--just waiting for everything else to catch up.

In the mean time, there is a terrible annoyance to sort out.

By default, when shutting down or logging out, one clicks on the K menu, Leave, then Logout, Lock, Switch User, Suspend to RAM, Suspend to Disk, Shutdown or Restart. At this point, further confirmation is required.

The way I see it, I've already jumped through hoops to tell my computer to shut down, why do I need to confirm it yet again? :confused:

Is there any way to change this behavior so that once selecting an action, my computer will begin performing that action without further confirmation?

From memory, i think it's in System Settings. Go to the advanced tab, and one of the options has to so with 'Sessions'. In there is a tick box that controls if you have to confirm your log out/shut down or not.
