Default kpowersave does not activate profile after logon

Hi,

After upgrading kpowersave to version 0.7.3-1.fc8, it no longer
activates a power profile automatically after logging on KDE. More
specifically, it seems the power profile is correctly selected, but the
LCD brightness is not adjusted accordingly.
For example, if I log on running on batteries, the powersave profile is
selected (I think), but LCD brightness is still 100%. If I change the
profile manually to performance, the LCD is adjusted to 90% (that's my
setting for the performance profile, this is ok). If right after that I
change back manually to the powersave profile, the LCD is then
correctly adjusted for 60%. However, when I logon, it's always set for
100%, no matter what profile it uses or the LCD brightness setting for
this profile. Also, when the screensaver runs, the LCD brightness is
automatically set back to 100%. Then I have to select other profile and
change back to the one I was using to set it right again.
I haven't found a bug on this on bugzilla. Anyone else is having this
problem or there's something I don't know here? Should I file a bug?

Thanks,

Marcelo

I have just noticed that the problem is not with kpowersave, but with
kernel 2.6.23.8-63. The same version of kpowersave works ok with kernel
2.6.23.1-49.fc8. The kernel 2.6.23.8-63 also has some problems here
with iwl3945 (many error messages in /var/log/messages and can't
connect to wireless networks) and playing sounds (sounds are played
with echoes).

I had profound issues getting kpowersave to control my backlight, until I
disabled acpid. Seems they were conflicting about something, but I haven't
tracked it down further. Does it work when you disable the acpid service?

Chris, after a little more research, it seems the problem is kernel
related. The previously described behavior of kpowersave only occurs
with kernel 2.6.23.8-63. The same version of kpowersave works ok with
kernel 2.6.23.1-49.fc8. I also have other problems with the newer
kernel (can't connect to wireless networks using iwl3945 and sounds are
being played with echoes).

For each of these issues, please check http://bugzilla.redhat.com to
see if a bug has been filed for each issue, and open one if not.
Remember to detail your hardware etc.

Your iwl3945 issue might be this:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=397921

I am not sure about the others.

Yes, I've already added some information to the iwl3945 bug. I will open
bugs for the others (if they're not already opened) as soon as I find
some time.
