On my son's laptop, I wanted to shut down the system tonight. He's
running 11.1 with KDE 3.x on a Dell D800.

I go to Geeko > Leave. There's only the option of "Logout" and "Lock".

What happened to the other options - Shutdown/Restart/Suspend (disk/ram)
and Start Other Operating System? (Those are options on my laptop.)

I googled and only found a (fixed) bug in 11.1 KDE 4 beta.

If you click "Log out..." is there not an option to do what you
desire? I only use the "KDE-style" menu so I can't comment on the
SuSE-style, but you click "log out" and then "Turn off computer." It
is the same in openSUSE 11.0 and 11.1.

Okay, I checked and I can shut down after logging out.

What broke?

No idea Kai, on the desktop with 11.1(i586) and KDE 3, i get the
features that you are missing. I'll be updating my laptop as soon as
it's back from the shop, and check that out.
