Yes, it is possible: use a System Request like ALT + SYSRQ + S, which
performs emergency sync of the disks.

To configure this varies between distros, and need no knowledge of
kernel programming, configuration, etc (or at last didn't last time I
did this in my Gentoo box).

Are you really really sure that the problem is KDE? Sorry questioning
this, just trying to narrow down the issue you are having.
