Login and Shutdown problems

You could sometimes skip a line, give us a space to breathe !
Oh well, I can reply about the login problem and the shutdown problem.
One remark : I have a french version, so I'll freely translate the titles of the menus, hoping you find the matching one.
The shutdown : the OS needs to know he can ask your motherboard to shutdown the computer, because not all motherboards/bios will manage that. So go to MCC, click Startup (errr, it might be "boot time" for you, for instance ). Click "configure
the system's behaviour at startup"). Click "activate ACPI".
Then, still in the MCC-startup, click "activate automatic connexion and chose the user that will be automatically logged in". Click "launch graphical interface at startup", and "automatic connexion (chose an environment)".
There you are, it should have made the job.
You may want to ask KDE itself for details : start kcontrol.
In "components" go to the Session Manager submenu, the options will be clear enough.
In "system" go to the "session manager" submenu, and read the "shutdown" (the shutdown command should be /sbin/halt) and "commodity" submenus.
If you still have problems, check your session manager. In the MCC, System, "Connexion manager (chose the connexion manager that will allow users to connect themselves". Check KDM (if it's not available, have it installed through URPMI).
