Public bug reported:

Kubuntu 7.04

1) Supend button in the log-off menu: monitor switched off, green LED on
my PC flashes (as it does with Windows XP standby), but nothing else
happens, irrespective what I set in kmenu> system settings> monitor &
display> power saving. Not even after one hour, PC is not switched off
(as it would with windows)

2) When I leave my running Kubuntu, screen saver takes over after the
time delay I set. But nothing else happens, no standby, let alone
hibernate. The PC keeps running forever.

3) I cannot set power options with Kubuntu on my PC. When I run
guidance-power-manager in a terminal, I get this response: "this is not
a laptop,...quitting   .

4) The same holds for /etc/X11/xorg.conf: When I open this file, there
is no sectrion "ServerFlags"! Apparently only available for laptops,
