I don't think this has to do Klaptopdaemon or kde-guidance-powermanager.
I would check that acpid is running and working and that the right drivers
is loaded. Try to search the log files for something related to acpi.
Make sure that acpi is activated in BIOS and not disabled in GRUB.
What modules do you have loaded? Do you have battery module?
What entries do you have in /proc/acpi speciall /proc/acpi/battery/
