Thank you Kevin for the response. I must add, that even when I am not starting 
using Beryl, I also have the same issue, but seems to really only not dock 
the KNetworkManager and not both KNetworkManager and KPowersave. 

Also, with setting up Beryl as the WM, would it allow me to run 
beryl --use-copy as a command, or will it only except beryl? Also, would 
beryl-manager still have to be run via script to start?
