The password saving problem sounds like a network-manager bug to me.  I
have not had much luck with nm-applet over the years, which is why TDE R14
will include tdenetworkmanager as a replacement.

This thread might offer some help:

As long as you do not have any GTK 3.x applications installed, GTK/TDE
integration should work just fine (I use it daily).

Go to the Login Manager KControl module and uncheck the SAK dialog box.

I think I know what you want to do, but I don't know if TDE provides an
option to do it.  If not, I would consider that a bug and ask you to file
a bug report on it.
