lingering problem with kpowersave

greets!

Slavek's updates got my kpowersave utility running again (I include 
the relevant post below) but I've a new issue.

if I boot into the desktop, the kpowersave utility (on the kicker bar) 
offers little more than 'help' and 'quit'.

to get the full configuration options I have to close and re-open the 
kde session.

so how to get the full kpowersave without having to close and re-open 
the session?

Inside every large problem is a small problem struggling to get out.
