Comment 1 Alexei Podtelezhnikov 2007-11-01 22:20:30 EDT
In my case, this is related to kpowersave, which fails to start properly, but 
succeeds in messing up logout controls in a meantime. You use a laptop, don't 

May I suggest, 'rpm -e kpowersave' temporarily just to confirm this 
possibility by checking how things work (or don't) without kpowersave. You may 
try to prevent it from starting some other way too. Check out my bug 358141.

If kpowersave is a culprit, please share which laptop you use and what the 
bios version is.

It's no kind of laptop, it's an HP DC7700 SFF.

Removing kpowersave eliminates the problem.

Comment 4 Alexei Podtelezhnikov 2007-11-02 08:37:43 EDT
I guess for you it is a fix, because you don't really need kpowersave. I wonder
why you had it installed in a first place.
Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2007-11-02 08:43:05 EDT
kpowersave is installed by default as part of kde-desktop.

For giggles, affected parties could try running gnome-power-manager to see if it
behaves any better.
Comment 6 John Summerfield 2007-11-02 18:53:26 EDT
I did not choose it, it got installed when I installed KDE after the main
installation. I guess it's in the KDE group.

I would expect it to be useful, I believe these machines can hibernate, and if
they don't have power-saving modes, they should have. Battery life isn't the
only reason to save power.

You need to update knetworkmanager as well. See bug 367711.
This will resolve nm-applet-related problems. It was officially updated today.
