Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kdebase-workspace

Following are several lines of output from powertop, while doing
effectively nothing (despite staring at the output of powertop) with my
computer:

The program 'flush-8:0' is writing to file 'kde-icon-cache.index' on /dev/sda1.
This prevents the disk from going to powersave mode.

The program 'plasma-desktop' is writing to file 'kde-icon-cache.lock.lN2736' on /dev/sda1.
This prevents the disk from going to powersave mode.

The program 'plasma-desktop' is writing to file 'kde-icon-cache.lock.QP2736' on /dev/sda1.
This prevents the disk from going to powersave mode.

Running powertop for a longer time will result in lots of such messages.
To me it seems not immediately necessary to frequently write to such
cache files, and create lock files, if the icon theme does (almost)
never change.

Kubuntu 10.04_beta1 / Lucid
kdebase-workspace 4:4.4.1-0ubuntu6
