apmd need not to be deinstalled, if you can guarantee that apmd is never
running if the powersave daemon run because if both run there are races,
because both daemons try to handle the same events and e.g. also suspend.
Btw. the best is remove apmd and fix the dependency in kubuntu-desktop (why
depends kubuntu-desktop on apmd? apmd is e.g. useless on ACPI machines).
powernowd is maybe not such a big problem, but the best is: remove (or be sure
powernowd is not running) if powersave is installed because powersaved also
handle/control cpufreq settings.
