    Have you searched the forum? This has come up at least two times in the
    last month. Yast: Security and Users: Local Security. Look for an
    option that talks about shutting down from the GUI.

    Good luck.

    thanks Chris. Using gdm avoids this problem for me, too.

    There was a problem in kde4.2 when you had a folder view on your desktop
    set to /home. I switched that folder to Documents and the shutdown
    problem went away.

    I think setting that folder to /home kept the disk from unmounting.
