Suse 9.3 and entrance login

Hi! Recently I installed entrance login manager from cvs on my suse 9.3 distro. Everything is working fine, except that if I login from entrance into my kde desktop, there is no welcome sound played (minor annoyance). Greater problem: Advanced power features doesn't work. I cannot set my cpu to powersave or dynamic mode, cannot switch between power schemes... I opened my console and typed:
#powersave -l
and I got in response, you don't have enough privileges to acess advanced power...
This works fine, if I'm using kdm or gdm for login manager (or something else, except entrance). I noticed if I login from entrance as root, everything is ok, only common users are affected.

Just a guess on the advanced power, but if that is an administration tool then perhaps you have to be in root to use it?

Freakygeek55: no, it should work even for normal users. The strange thing happens when I switch login manager to entrance.
