glad you got yours figured out. not so lucky here.

trying to install the new release practically killed my system. I 
wrestled it back to near health though there are still issues, 
including the kpowersave issue. I didn't have tdepowersave in 

I took the hard-drive out and put in a new virgin one, did a new 
install but for carrying over home. that has the tdepowersave app but 
it is misbehaving: it shuts down the system no matter what I put in 
the configuration menu. (or maybe something else does...?)

guess this is an advance since the other version either didn't have a 
config menu or only had one after manually loading hald. even then I 
wasn't sure it was doing anything.

the new ssd card is cool though. makes a difference I hadn't noticed 
on my netbook, the laptop has more and faster cpus.
