I am on a Gnome desktop and so can not help you with KDE.
But I think you should try Gnome as well (they can co-exist).
You will get to know it (I am a convert from KDE myself) and at the same time
see if your power and battery work correctly.
Try it:
# [root at localhost jb]# yum grouplist |grep -i gnome
# yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"
