I'll try the ACPI=OFF and see if that works. Not that I know what that is, but I'll figure it out. My laptop is an IBM thinkpad T43. I have a dual partition sharing SUSE 10 with Windows XP.

ACPI is used to help assign irqs. It's what allows two devices to share the same IRQ no. I would only use the noacpi boot option if there was a problem during installation.

Also look at the output of lsmod. I think that you need certain kernel modules loaded for kpowersaved to work.
The modules may depend on your particular CPU. On mine:
cpufreq_powersave 2176 0
powernow_k8 10512 0
freq_table 5128 1 powernow_k8
processor 26068 2 powernow_k8,thermal

Also go through the "YaST -> System -> Power Management" configuration. Sometimes if there is software missing, the yast configuration program will notice it and ask if you want to install it. There is also an ACPI settings dialog in the "other options", but these options all deal with Laptop specific options.

$ rcdbus start
$ rcpowersaved start
$ rchal start

Especially important is dbus if it is NOT running then powersaved will NOT work.

2. If yes to 1, then how do i have it automatically start up?
So I had this exact problem with a clean install of SuSE10.0 in vmware workstation build 5.5.4 build-44386.

Every time the system started up I would get the error message. But when I ran the suggested command I was told that the daemon was already running.

The solution was Yast| System | System services (run level). Go to the powersaved row (in my case it was already enabled), disable it and then enable it. I received a message about the cmos clock - this appeared to be the problem - and now everything works perfectly.

Hope this helps anyone else out there:)
