I use to have suspend and battery monitoring working fine. I did my weekly yum update... new kernel, new X, new KDE base... now no battery monitoring / suspend.
ACPID seems to be working fine
[root@wizej ~]# service acpid status
acpid (pid 2170) is running...
I don't know the applet which launched the "battery" in the system tray. I also could swear that their was a section in KDE's "Control Center" which managed this. It is now missing.
I also right clicked the system trey to add the "battery" applet back in, but that is not an option. Any clues on what that service was, and how to re-enable power managment?
