Apparantly, it 
 1. puts the computer in the appropriate performance mode.
 2. Keeps and eye on battery status
 3. Interfaces to the suspend and whats-the-other-name

Of these, only 3 might relevant for a desktop and none for a server (not that 
I know what KDE might be doing on a server at all).

If the option does not work, you'll have to find the relevant text file and 
edit it. I'm no expert in this, but I'd guess that if you look 
for .kde/share/config/kpowersaverc (or similar), you'll find an AutoStart=yes 
or similar. At least, that's how Klipper works.
