If you read what dylunio said again you'll see that he said that there should be an option to shut down when you choose the option to logout of KDE, and he's right. There should be -- if there isn't on your system, then that's what we have to work on.
Also, the console commands will work if you run them as rootCode:
su - <your root password here>Registered Linux user #388328 || Registered LFS user #15880
AMD 64 X2 4600+ :: 2X1GB DDR2 800 :: GeForce 9400 GT 512MB :: ASUS M2N32 Deluxe :: 4X250GB SATAII

yes, you need to be root before you try the shutdown command, i have this problem aswell in slackware. Where in KDE theres only the end session option, if you change the default init to 4 so it boots kde automatiacally i found that there was a restart and a shutdown option that worked perfectally fine, i have no idea why this happened
