KDE is trying to be session-aware as much as possible, and every program that
was running at the logout time will be reactivated on the next login (that's
the idea, at least). That's how "sessions" work and that's why skype gets
restarted --- because you didn't explicitly shut it down before login.

To prevent it from restarting, go to systemsettings -> startup and shutdown ->
session management, find the field called "applications to be excluded from
sessions", and put skype in there.

Haven't tried it (I happen to want skype to start on login), but it should
work. ;-)

HTH, :-)

I don't use KDE but Gnome used to have System/Preferences/Startup
Applications


The Option tab on the Startup Applications Preferences dialog box had a
checkbox [Automatically remember running applications when logging out].


If you put a check in that box then whatever was running at log out
would automatically restart on log in.


There was also a button [Remember Currently Running Application] that
you would use after you got your desktop set up the way you wanted it to
look at log in.


It's probably not the best idea to check the [Automatically remember
running applications when logging out] box. If you have an application
that crashes your session it could get restarted automatically the next
time you log in potentially crashing it again. Could get messy. ;-)


Like I said, I don't use KDE, but I'll bet there is something similar
there. This has been a standard part of most Unix desktops for the last
20 years or more.
