I've done that.

It's part of the Battery Powered Howto.  I was hoping to avoid rehashing
the elements of power saving that are more generic to Linux as that
doesn't seem to be the problem.

If I run fvwm2 it's OK.  Gnome is OK too.  KDE is not.
I don't know how to trouble-shoot this kind of problem at this point.
If you have any suggestions, please don't keep them to yourself!

Deactive powersavings i kcontrol.

Kind of contradictory isn't it?

Not When you consider that in my experience KDE powersaving is horribly broken. Someone has tried to make Windows(TM) and forgot the kernel takes care of power. My biggest problem is that whenever I activate screensaving, the screen shuts off while I am actually working! If I continue to type and move the mouse, it then immediatly starts powing up again. Somehow KDE manages to overlook computer activity...

Anyway, I tried it. It didn't seem to help anything. But I haven't seen the same problems that you described. I'm waivering between looking around at a different WM, waiting for more new packages, or continuing to try to work this problem when I have no clue what I'm doing.
