Description:

KPowersave is the KDE frontend for powermanagement. It provides battery monitoring, suspend/ standby triggers and many more powermanagement features for KDE (and GNOME).

Current feature list:
- support ACPI, APM (and PMU since 0.7.x)
- trigger suspend to disk/ram and standby
- switch cpu frequency policy (between: performance, dynamic and powersave)
- applet icon/tooltip with info about AC state, and battery fill/(warning) states, remainig time
- scheme specific settings (see below)
- autosuspend (to suspend if a user was a defined time inactive)
- autodimm
- a global and scheme specific configurable blacklist with programmes to prevent autosuspend/autodimm (e.g. videoplayer and cd burning tools)
- trigger lock screen on lidclose ans suspend and select the lock methode
- define battery warning levels and related actions if a level reached
- actions for special button events (power/lid/suspend/sleep buttons)
- define AC/Battery default scheme
- KNotify support for many events
- online help and localisations

- KPowersave support schemes with following configurable specific settings for:
* screensaver/DPMS
* brightness (if supported by hardware)
* autosuspend/autodimm
* scheme specific blacklist for autosuspend/autodimm
* CPU Frequency Policy

- KPowersave contains a detailed dialog (on left mouse button on the applet icon) with all PM relavant info

To run KPowersave you need currently:
- dbus/dbus-qt3 (http://www.freedesktop.org/Software/dbus)
- HAL >= 0.5.9 (http://www.freedesktop.org/Software/hal)

Additionaly you can use the powersave daemon to handle powermanagement if no user is logged in to the system (http://sourceforge.net/projects/powersave/).

For (additional) dependencies see the project homepage and documentation.

If you run KPowersave on KDE you can remove klaptop from your system. KPowersave was developed as a replacement.

KPowersave and powersave are (as we know) running on this distributions:
* SUSE Linux (defaultly, available RPMs are for 10.0, for 10.1/10.2/10.3 see related repositories (www.opensuse.org), for 9.2/9.3 see older version on sf.net available)
* ALTLinux: default
* K/Ubuntu: from universe repository
* Debian: available via 'apt-get install kpowersave'
* Fedora Core 6/7/8 (sf.net)
* Mandriva 2007/2008(sf.net)
* Gentoo (ebuilds see download link)
* Arch Linux
* Slackware (http://www.mytux.org/content/viewslackpackage.php)
* (Simply)Mephis (since 6.0 default)
* FOX Linux (default)
* RR/RR64 Linux (default)
* PLD Linux (devel tree)
* Aurox (devel tree)
* Pardus
Packages and porting information for other distributions would be appreciated.

---------------------------------------
KPowersave 0.7.3:

Major changes since the last version/release:
- added new dialog to show logfiles if a suspend/resume fail and allow the user to save the log (need to get enabled per distro)
- added support to handle brightness key events if the machine not already handle this in the hardware directly
- added new feature named autodimm to reduce the brightness of the display if the user is inactive and dimm up if the user get active again
- new dialog shown up 30 seconds before
autosuspend call the suspend to warn the user and allow chancel the suspend
- added code to work with new PolicyKit/ConsoleKit/HAL combi to check if the user is privileged (for HAL >= 0.5.10 and related PolicyKit versions)
- added code to check if the current desktop session is avtive and handle if the session get inactive (via ConsoleKit)
- added code to release/aquire org.freedesktop.Policy.Power if the session get inactive/active to allow powersaved or other active KPowersave instances to handle powermanagement
- prepared KPowersave to work also with HAL >= 0.5.10 (handle renamed policy names in HAL)
- use now kdebug functions instead of own macros, added --dbg-trace option to allow trace function entry and leave points.

Minor changes:
- added wodim to autosuspend blacklist
- changed logic for resume if a timeout happen
- change default timeout to fake keyevent for locked screen to 2.5 sec
- don't fake key event after locked screen and lidopen if config variable timeToFakeKeyAfterLock = 0
- added new config variable (callSetPowerSaveOnAC in [General] section) to disable call SetPowerSave() on HAL.
- fix code to guess if a 6-hour-timeout occours while suspend/resume or if there was really a error
- removed Portuguese version of the help, since only one paragraph was translated
- fixed configure script to detect if we should use HAL to get information about policies instead of PolicyKit
- force update detailed dialog on AC events to get always e.g. the correct scheme info in the dialog
- reworked code for mouse wheel events to reuse code for brightness keys
- several HAL/D-Bus/PolicyKit/ConsoleKit related fixes/updates
- cleanup code, fixed compiler warnings, added new functions to removed doubled code

This release contains many bugfixes and translation updates. For more follow the Changelog.

 Doesn't work :(

I've compiled and installed both powersave and kpowersave, but when I start the latter, it only has two items in it's menu: "Help" and "Quit". What could that be?

In this case I think powersaved or DBUS is not running - start/restart both daemons and it should work (maybe check also if HAL is running).

I found out that powersaved quits just after being started. It creates /var/run/powersaved.pid, but there's no process with that PID.

I tried to debug, but GDB told "Program exited with code 01.", so it didn't crash.

Please set the variable DEBUB="" to DEBUG="15" in /etc/powersave/common, restart powersave and tell us what you see in /var/log/messages when powersave shuts down.

BTW: What is the powersave version and distribution you are working with?

Well, I realized I didn't have the /etc/powersave dir, so I created it and copied all the files from the source dir. Still, nothing worked. Although I've set the debug level to 15, not a single message appeared in the logs.

I'm using Gentoo, compiled powersave-0.11.5 by hand.

It would be usefull if you could write a mail to: 'powersave-devel at forge dot novell dot com' with a short description of your problem on Gentoo.

We could discuss this there in a better/easier way than here and would try to help you. Thanks.

please generate a .deb file to be able to use your so useful program (sincerely great) with ubuntu (debian).

Thanks a lot for this if you do it.

If you take a look in the description, there are already dep files for debian/ubuntu available (currently v0.5.2).

On Debian you can get KPowersave/powersave with 'apt-get install kpowersave' and for Ubuntu you can download packages from http://www.teco.edu/~biebl/ubuntu

I think the packages will be updated as soon as possible by the debian/ubuntu package maintianer/packager (Michael Biebl).

You couldn`t only compile the help. Looks as if you miss some xls or KDE doc packages.

 autosuspend not work

 
 by hothead on: Feb 2 2006
 
Score 50%

Hi,
i managed to install powersave and kpowersave on gentoo here, but kpowersave has to be started as root to be able to connect to the powersave daemon. What must I change to run it as user?
Furthermore the autosuspend feature doesn't work. I also tried it when kde runs as root, but no go.
Any suggestion?

Regards,
Ruben

I think this is a gentoo specific problem with the D-BUS settings. Normaly you don't need to start kpowersave as root. This was not needed on any other distribution before. You could take a look at the sourceforge help-forum or at the powersave-devel mailinglist. There was already a thread about problems on Gentoo.

We found the reason for the not working autosuspend feature. The problem is the path for pidof in the code (/sbin/pidof). On Gentoo this is /bin/pidof. We fixed this for the next release, you can workaround this if you add a link to /sbin/pidof.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
