Package: kpowersave
Version: 0.7.2-3
Severity: important

When kpowersave is configured to lock the screen on suspend/standby, and if the 
AC adapter state on resume is 
different than what it was on suspend, the KDE session is lost.  I'm greeted 
with the kdm sign-on screen and the 
other session is nowhere to be found.  Needless to say, this can cause some 
data loss depending on what any open 
applications may be doing.

I have isolated this to the screen lock option; if I turn that off, this 
problem consistently goes away.

One set of steps to reproduce:

- Start kpowersave
- Configure kpowersave to suspend to RAM when the sleep button is pressed
- Configure kpowersave to lock screen on suspend/standby
- Plug AC adapter in
- Press sleep button (Fn-F4 on my Thinkpad X60)
- After machine suspends, unplug the AC adapter
- Press the Fn button
- Machine resumes, but the session is lost and I'm greeted by kdm instead
