If you already use KPowersave, then I would propose you use also powersaved, 
which take automatically care about powermanagement if there is no KPowersave 
(as e.g. if the user isn't logged in or if there is no desktop running) 
instance running or if the user session get inactive. 

AFAIK powersave should also handle the power button in such cases.
