Err what? I don't see kpowersave referenced anywhere in our kickoff
branch. It actually detects from hal directly. I don't know where you
got that idea.

Nope, kpowersave does exactly what kickoff does, communicate via hal.

the best solution is to implement a interface for all programs to
access via dcop, that way we can use hal or udev or whatever backend
and not have to rewrite the system every time

previously what did? ksmserver?

Kpowersave works the same way, via hal.
