This question was discussed sometime ago. This is not a time out but the
fact that tde/kde3 stores the state of the applications you are running
when you exit the session.
I don't think KDE3 did it differently. The notification window was just not
there AFAIR.
@home I have /home on nfs - it takes longer compared to when /home is on
local drive.

If you are the only user of the notebook and you don't have to change
profiles (like I do), you could use hibernation. You even do not have to
reopen applications or log in.

To the original subject I have the impression that kmix takes too long (like
few seconds), but I never had time to look into what it does on shutdown.

anyway thanks for the screenshot, because there was speculation what you
originally mean.
