sorry i have no idea about KDE panel bt it might not appear till you get stuff kicking.
you got acpi stuff turned on in your kernel ??
look in /proc/acpi/
i would imagine all KDE panel is going to do is manipulate sysfs
echo mem > /sys/power/state
and see if your box goes to sleep
if you are loading up APM it and ACPI can't get along so you might have to
apm=off acpi=on or something in your boot parameters.
