kpowersave crashes upon configure

I've just installed the KDE Live spin of F7. When I right-click on kpowersave and click "Configure Kpowersave", the program crashes and I get KDE's regular crash handler. What could be the problem?

I had the same problem, probably a bug.

Personally I never liked kpowersave anyways, imho it isn't very inefficient.
I put the following in /etc/rc.local to handle my cpu throttling needs:

if [ -f /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/cpufreq/cpufreq_conservative.ko ]; then
    echo -e "Setting Conservative CPU Governor"
    modprobe cpufreq_conservative
    echo conservative > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor
    echo -e "Conservative CPU Governor not available!"
You can also uninstall kpowersave and just use KDE's power management (access it via control center)
