Powersave demon


hi probably a simple answer to this: when I boot I get the error message The powersave daemon is not running.with the solution: Starting it will improve performance: /usr/sbin/rcpowersaved start, so I type that:/usr/sbin/rcpowersaved start, into Konsole but its there when I reboot. how do I enable powersave and stop the error, thanks,Adrian

One way to do it :

# echo '/usr/sbin/rcpowersaved $1' >> /etc/init.d/powersave
# chmod +x /etc/init.d/powersave
# ln -fs /etc/init.d/powersave /etc/rc0.d/K20powersave
# ln -fs /etc/init.d/powersave /etc/rc1.d/K20powersave
# ln -fs /etc/init.d/powersave /etc/rc2.d/S20powersave
# ln -fs /etc/init.d/powersave /etc/rc3.d/S20powersave
# ln -fs /etc/init.d/powersave /etc/rc4.d/S20powersave
# ln -fs /etc/init.d/powersave /etc/rc5.d/S20powersave
# ln -fs /etc/init.d/powersave /etc/rc6.d/K20powersave

Thanks,Agrouf, did that but the error was still there when I re-booted. Also tried yast (system services runlevel) Powersave was set to NO with an asterisk next to it so I changed it via the expert mode enabling 3,5 (after trying a few things) and that changed it to Yes with no asterisk, but the error still comes up on Desktop (The powersave daemon is not running.
Starting it will improve performance: /usr/sbin/rcpowersaved start)
when I re-boot?
