Another candidate is either a stale or missing powerdevil. I fix it
sometimes like this:
$ killall org_kde_powerdevil
$ /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libexec/org_kde_powerdevil &
This has been a common problem for me for years since I started using KDE
around jessie. It happens on all of my several machines.
I would guess many background processes like backups, network stuff, cloud
storage, etc. could mess around with the time limit, or disable it the
same way vlc and others do. I think that is thru dbus, but I don't
understand the exact mechanism used to do it.
Hope you find it.
