I've come across some issues related to powersave on a clean install of openSUSE 10.2 RC1.
1. When kpowersave is running and a laptop power button is pressed, powersaved complains (and nothing else happens): Nov 27 07:52:05 vaio powersaved: Debug (handleHWEventRequest:170) type: button/power, dev_name: PWRB, port: 00000080, count: 00000015 Nov 27 07:52:05 vaio powersaved: Info (handleHWEventRequest:215) button.power event occured Nov 27 07:52:05 vaio powersaved: Debug (haveClient:313) We don't own the interface org.freedesktop.Policy.Power
If I shutdown kpowersave, button events work as set in /etc/sysconfig/powersave/events. The issue is that button events are not configurable in kpowersave, therefore there is no way to e.g. set the power button to trigger a 'suspend to ram' instead of the default action assigned by kpowersave.
2. s2ram It appears that options are read from /etc/sysconfig/powersave/sleep instead of /etc/pm/config. I have set the '--force' option in /etc/pm/config, however when triggering suspend to ram from the kpowersave context menu, the system attempts to suspend to ram but instead of powering off, comes back complaining about '--force' not being set. '--force' is only set in /etc/sysconfig/powersave/sleep. Furthermore, the s2ram scripts still point the user to /etc/sysconfig/powersave/sleep for configuration.
3. Brightness Changing brightness works fine using kpowersave. When using the laptop hotkeys (Fn+F5/F6) for changing the brightness, a message window shows up (it has the same look as when pressing volume hotkeys, I just don't know which program it is), indicating that brightness is being changed, however only the LED brightness of the power-button on the laptop-chassis changes but not the display brightness.
Some more info: powersave version is 0.15.8-3 pm-utils version is 0.20.0.20061114-2 kpowersave version is 0.7.1 Laptop is a Sony Vaio VGN-T1XP
