kde system settings, system administration, startup and shutdown, session 
management.  At the top under general, UNCHECK confirm logout.

Alternatively, setup a keyboard shortcut for it.  That /should/ be in kde 
system settings, shortcuts and gestures, global keyboard shortcuts, I 
think under session manager or the like, but I'm running kde4-live-
sources, which ATM is what will be 4.13, and I don't seem to see it there 
ATM and I can't find it under options like kwin either.  But from memory 
that's where it is.  There should be a "without confirmation" or "without 
delay" option there.  Here I set that to ctrl-alt-del quite some time 
ago, but I believe the default is ctrl-alt-shift-del, and ctrl-alt-del is 
I think the default shortcut for logout /with/ confirmation.  Anyway, tho 
I can't find the config for it ATM, my setting still works, and that's 
what I normally use instead of the menu option. =:^)
