In terms of logout sound, I think it is not required.  Why not just de-saturate the screen?  This can indicate that the logout has been started without causing un-necessary noise.

For login, I agree the sound is too long.  It should be 4 seconds max.  I think 3 is a good length personally.   If you took the current sound, and stopped it at the end of the second beat and held that chord for another .5 seconds, or alternatively if you stopped it on the change of bass note (at the beginning of the third beat) and held that chord for a little longer, I believe that this would work well.
