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.
