With kdesu you can present a input box for the root password

i.e. 'kdesu ksysguard' and you can kill/pause root processes.
There is for gnome something as gtksu when I remeber well (SuSE has/had it)

from man kdesu
       kdesu - Runs a program with elevated privileges.

       kdesu [Qt-options] [KDE-options] [kdesu options] command

       Runs a program with elevated privileges.

       KDE  su  is a graphical front end to the Unix su utility. It allows you
       to run programs as another user by entering their password. It is not a
       SUID root program, but runs unprivileged. The system program su is used
       for acquiring special privileges.

No need for sudoers file.
