FWIW, my netbook uses laptop-mode-tools to handle things pretty much 
automatically, and when I do touch it manually, it's thru the command-line 
tools, not kde, so I don't use powerdevil, etc, here and can't directly 
answer your question.  That said...

Please repost the question with at least /some/ information about what 
distribution release and kde version you're using.  There's nary a version 
of ANYTHING AT ALL listed in your post! =:^(  Versions for the kernel and 
cpufrequtils you may be using could be useful as well, if they aren't the 
distribution defaults and/or for those who use other distributions that 
might or might not be affected.

Without that, as the kernel folks would say,
-ENODATA (error, no data available).
