Currently kickoff detects well if kpowersave is running. I thought you patched kpowersave to work through upower instead of hal.
Would not it be a better solution?

Previously it used its own daemon, then it was ported to hal, why not to port it to upower?
Hybernate/suspend dialog circumventing kpowersave is not good I think.
