I have never used kArm myself (didn't even know it existed, thanks for
the tip), but I have had strange behaviour related to idle time on my
laptop, running Fedora 8 (and earlier versions) and KDE 3.5.x (x<=9).
What I have noticed is that after system suspend/resume, the screen
doesn't (always) suspend after the specified time. My workaround has
been to enter kcontrol and deactivate and reactivate the power
management for the screen.
So, I think this might be something that is not specific to kArm, but
rather the underlying idle timer of KDE, whatever that is.
Could it be that the timer doesn't handle the sudden jump in time
experienced after resume?
I now run KDE 4.1 on Fedora 9 and haven't had *that* problem..
