The short answer is that the "death of a star" is an immensly complicated astro-physics problem. You should either find some good books on the subject of stars, or search the web for this subject. Really, this is the subject of many astronomy careers.

My theory about the death of a star that turns into a white dwarf and just dissapears:
A star is a very huge source of gravity!!!, if the planets in the solar system were not orbiting they would crash into the sun. When hydrogen reacts inside the sun it will stay on the sun. It is not possible to destroy matter so it remains on the sun, right? wrong, something takes it away because the sun shrinks... PHOTONS, people say that the dont have mass but my theory says they do. The sun slowly loses mass by emmiting photons. if photons have no mass then how can they be sucked intoa black hole. You quoted something about the opposite of a black hole, they are called white holes and they are the antimatter of black holes.
