Description Alexei Podtelezhnikov 2007-12-30 21:41:47 EST
Description of problem:
Try setting kpowersave monitor stand-by time before the time when kscreensaver 
activates. For example, set monitor stand-by for 1 min and kscreensaver for 2 
min. In 1 min, monitor goes into stand-by, kscreensaver immediately starts and 
then freezes in just a few seconds.

Everything works fine when stand-by follows kscreensaver.
This was observed from the launch of Fedora 8 through all the updates, but I 
got a handle on this only now.

How reproducible:
all the time with illogical kpowersave and kscreensaver settings

Use logical kpowersave and kscreensaver settings. This does not mean that this 
is a user's screw-up. It is a bug in kpowersave, which should prevent 
kscreensaver from even starting, I guess.
Comment 1 Alexei Podtelezhnikov 2008-01-09 12:42:18 EST

After the comment in the above upstream bugreport, I agree that this is rather 
a kscreensaver issue. After all kscreensaver should be able to see that the 
monitor is already in stand-by and just stay quiet. This is much less trouble 
than asking kpowersave and kscreensaver to negotiate their settings... 
Reassigning to kscreensaver (kdebase).
