Is there a way ( being an administrator ) to logout other users, without shutting down the computer?
And if yes, are there any differences doing that in SL and L(eopard) ?

Thank you

    Open Activity Monitor, and find the loginwindow process running for the user. Force quit it. You will then have to authenticate as an admin user. This will log out the user and terminate all of his running processes.

    WARNING: This will cause the other user to lose any unsaved work, and could also cause corruption of any files the user has open. Proceed with caution.

    Thank you for your quick answer. It worked.
    Now in activity monitor I see that "launchd" is still there, but I guess it should be there...

    Thank you again
