Here is one possibility - if the user instead of the classic Trinity menu 
uses Kickoff menu, there is a countdown at logout / reboot / shutdown.

To my knowledge, to set delay for logout / reboot / shutdown there are no 
items in the UI. It is necessary to make an entry in the configuration 
file kdeglobals, section General, variables confirmLogoutDelay, 
confirmRebootDelay and confirmShutdownDelay.
