it's simple in genereal

* disable anything you are not sure that it is needed
* check if everyting works
* if everything works you are fine

just got reminded on this because we have 4 more or less identical 
machines (HW 100% identical, setup more or less idential) on Fedora 21 
and the machine of my co-developer started after routine updates to 
switch off the monitor after login on KDM/KDE

well, "systemctl stop upower.service; systemctl mask upower.service" and 
anything is fine as before, finally idsbaled upower on the other 3 
machines too
