If you installed it from DVD instead of the KDE spin, you probably have 
GDM as the default login manager. Switching to KDM would likely fix this.

Modify or create a file /etc/sysconfig/desktop and add

DISPLAY=KDE
DiSPLAYMANAGER=KDM

Save the file and relogin and check out the menu options.  The command 
line equivalent to hibernate menu option is called pm-hibernate. It is 
possible to setup a shortcut on the desktop to this command too.
