I saw the same thing on a PCLinuxOS machine today running KDE 4.4.5, so this looks more like a bug than anything else IMHO.

Weird... my mepis 8.5 64 bit restarts OK.

Attached is my Session Manger screen... that is the only thing I can think of.

After Kmenu --> Leave --> Restart Computer, The second screenshot is what I see. waiting or clicking the yellow button both shutdown and restart my desktop.

Cheers

I had this happen and the way out is that when you get taken back to the login screen use the menu below the login and you will find that it works.....
...most of the time. If you get a console log in screen log yourself in and then you can shut down with the command poweroff as su.

This stopped happening to me after I reran sgfxi. No idea why.
