kpowersave is unfortunately overriding the settiings from control center.
However it offers its own setting through the icon's context menu, menu
entry "configure kpowersave"

You were right, kpowersave was the problem.
I figured out how to get to it's configuration menu but
could not figure out what options to try on the kpowersave
command line. I believe it had the option set to force acpi.
I searched through the kde help, but could not find any
options for it documented (Suse 10.0).
Where can you find them?
I got rid of the problem though by removing the kpowersave.desktop
file from the .../kde/share/Autostart directory.
Now the screen savers and power control are working fine.
