Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kde-guidance-powermanager

I'm running Kubuntu Feisty, with KDE 3.5.7, on a Compaq Presario V2610CA

It appears that the idle-time delay set in the kde-guidance-powermanager
applet for suspension/hibernation is not always respected.  I did
various tests:  if I set a short delay (1 minute), things are working
well. But for longer delays (30 min. or 1 h.) it will usualy take much
longer for the system to suspend or hibernate (app.1 h. if the delay is
sent to 30 min.).  Sometimes (rarely), after 1 full night or day (app.
10 hours) the system is still up...

I'm not sure, but I'm wondering if the problem could be related to the
fact that I'm running Kerry (with the Beagle daemon), that is usually
indexing stuff when the system is idle for some time...  If I have some
time, I'll do some tests without running Kerry/Beagle.

One other thing is that I don't experience this problem with Kpowersave.
Also, I can't compare with how things were going with Edgy, since I was
then using Klaptop-daemon.

Thanks for your attention.
