I don't know why I need a "backlighthelper" (this is a desktop, not a laptop).

Is there some way to turn this off (/var/log/messages consists primarily of these notices and almost nothing else)?

Code:

Sep 18 01:41:28 system dbus[842]: [system] Activating service name='org.kde.powerdevil.backlighthelper' (using servicehelper)
Sep 18 01:41:28 system dbus[842]: [system] Successfully activated service 'org.kde.powerdevil.backlighthelper'
Sep 18 01:43:58 system dbus[842]: [system] Activating service name='org.kde.powerdevil.backlighthelper' (using servicehelper)
Sep 18 01:43:58 system dbus[842]: [system] Successfully activated service 'org.kde.powerdevil.backlighthelper'
Sep 18 01:46:28 system dbus[842]: [system] Activating service name='org.kde.powerdevil.backlighthelper' (using servicehelper)
Sep 18 01:46:28 syscem dbus[842]: [system] Successfully activated service 'org.kde.powerdevil.backlighthelper'


Thank you in advance.

This used to annoy me too, fixed it by going to power management in systemsettings, choose power profiles and uncheck dim display. Seemed a bit silly to have dim display and screen energy saving both kick in after 10 minutes anyway...
