Then you should disable nepomuk, strigi, akonadi and maybe other services
via systemsettings, if you don't use these. If you don't want akonadi at all,
don't use the clock plasmoid in the control panel, and remove all akonadi
agents from the scripts that autolaunch them, and don't use any kdepim

Another tip could be: don't reboot so frequently and just keep kde running :)
