for me option A looks better, we just need better wording. Maybe
"State" and "Service" instead of start-up?

From my POV, the current state of a service and start-up are related, so
I'd expect them on the same screen. On the other hand, both options A
and B seem to be too complicated for the first (and even second) sight.

Yes, that's a known issue. But after discussing the UI for more than
three hours in several meetings and also in a quite long mail thread, we
were not able to find a UI being both usable (i.e. easy) and clear (i.e.
with no room for surprises). Looks like we have to choose one. So the
goal if this proposal is to ensure that nobody gets an unexpected state
after saving, even at expenses of usability.

Additionally, option B have them one one screen, but they are separated
by LDAP and Firewall settings. Reconsidering these screens ~ maybe LDAP
and Firewall do not belong there at all. They aren't actually related to
service (status) at all.

BTW, I replied mainly to remind you to keep Ken in CC.
