If you start KDE with KDM, there is NO way to exit KDM without shutting down the X server.
The stock KDM will allow you to run a (non-X) console session if you want.
On the other hand, if you start X from the console with: "startx" you might be able to exit KDE
without shutting down the X server. To do this, it is necessary that KDE be started from an
Xterm. So, from the console try:
startx -e startkde -DPI 100
Then logout of KDE and see what happens.
