    That's this long standing bug, that already was there in 12.3:
    https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=224200

    This should kill all of them:
    Code:
    killall kblankscrn.kss
    As a workaround you could set a different screensaver (not all of them have this problem) or just use the "Simple Screenlocker".

    But the blank screensaver shouldn't really take any resources anyway, so you can probably just ignore it.
