Is there a setting somewhere that tells KDE Power Management System to stop creating notifications whenever I put the computer to sleep? It is annoying, having my notification list full of 'The screen is being locked' messages.

You aren't the only one who thinks it's useless. The KDE developers are removing this notification entirely in KDE 4.10.

To disable it now, follow these steps:

  1. Go to System Settings.

  2. Go to Power Management.

  3. On the left side, click Advanced Settings.

  4. On the right side, click the Configure Notifications... button.

  5. Select the notification Performing a suspension job.

  6. Disable all notifications related to this job, and then click OK.

Thanks alot! It works! Except I like the sound that plays when KDE goes to sleep, etc. so I left the Play a sound box checked. – BenjiWiebe Jan 29 '13 at 13:57
