    Apparently this happens because powersaved takes the battery status
    information from hald and the following kernel changes make hald crash on
    my system:

    http://kernel.org/git/gitweb.cgi?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commit;h=43104f1da88f5335e9a45695df92a735ad550dda

    (ie. after reverting them hald works again).

    Greetings,
