too many settings?

I'm getting confused among the many different ways to configure some
settings with KDE on Fedora. I'll illustrate with a specific, but
wonder about the general solution.
For display power management, I have, at least:
Display (which has no power settings)
Screen Saver (which has a Display Power Management area)
Power Control (with different settings/values)
Let PowerDevil manage screen powersaving (I think this implies
'Edit Profiles' will have precedence, but only a poweruser could
interpret the help to know that, if I even got it right)
Screen (which has even different time values)
Volume controls would be another one - I need at least KMix and the
Pulse Audio control panel, which doesn't even show up in my menu.
So, in a situation, how do I figure out what to use? Is there a general
rule of precedence or do I have to understand the interworkings of the
parts to know what to set?
That aside, do I have my systems installed incorrectly? If not, is
there an existing effort to refactor redundant/confusing settings GUI's?
