That works the same here. But after hitting the power button, it's a dcop call 
what is made here in my system. /sbin/shutdown does not get called 
immediately. I know it because I onced tried to cancel the shutdown (shutdown 
-c), and discovered that no shutdown was running yet until I answered the KDE 
app dialog that was waiting for me.

I think this might have little to do with KDE after all. Maybe it's just a 
problem with the way that acpid handles the poweroff event. I just would like 
to know if KDE has a way to know that a shutdown has been requested --maybe 
by a system administrator--, and close properly. I mean, by saving the 
session and avoiding applications from blocking the process.
