You could do the following, depending on what you want to achieve:

Just perform logout, if TDE is configured to shutdown after logout, it will turn off the computer (in most cases), but you will have to run it some minutes before shutdown:

	$ dcop ksmserver ksmserver logout

If you want to ensure the session is saved, you can do something like:

	$ dcop ksmserver ksmserver saveCurrentSession
	$ ksmserver ksmserver logout
	# sleep 10; poweroff

You do not need to explictly stop tdm, initiating a system shutdown will do that for you.
