    for ctrl+alt+backspace it is returing to gdm/kdm or rather it is called loggin off.u can type in the command 'shutdown" in the terminal,provided u r root u u type 'sudo shutdown"and it will work

    ok, i will ecplain better, i use the door icon on the top panel and select shutdown/logoff etc..
    however it sort of sits there and does.... nothing until i push ctrl+alt+backspace
    if i had pushed shutdown and i ctrl+alt+backspace it will shutdown
    if i had pushed logout and i ctrl+alt+backspace it will logout

    i dont really want to have to do ctrl+alt+backspace every time i want to shutdown/logoff.
