It is a desktop. I do not use power savings functionality (at least
not deliberately).

It is the default Xorg config which had been established during the
installation of Kubuntu.

Sorry. The problems appear after logging in (after power-on). Logging
out and in again seems to throw the dice again and may lead to a
different scenario. It can happens to any user in the system (not just
me) even for newly created ones (i.e. without any modification of
configuration settings).

Which release are you using currently? It's Kubuntu 10.04 LTS amd64 here.

Kind regards
