I have xfce on my netbook - it works well enough there. But my current
laptop has the resources for kde or gnome, so i'd prefer to stay put
for the moment.
In any case, i installed gnome as suggested, created a new user and
logged into a gnome session. Hey presto, the power management works as
it should. so i logged out and logged in again as the new user but
with kde and the power management failed. Logged out and in again to
the gnome session and it worked again. By "worked" i mean the icon
changed after a short time and an information dialog was displayed.
So I think this is a kde problem.
