Monitor power saving reverts after a second or two

I'm using KDE Plasma (Wayland), and I've got a good problem with the implementation of monitor power saving on my system. The KDE settings menu is configured such that after ten minutes without activity, my two displays should switch off. What happens in practice:
* after ten minutes, the displays switch off. So far so good
* after about a second, they turn themselves back on with no input from me
* windows are rearranged across the two monitors seemingly at random
Obviously, this is inconvenient. I've got the feature disabled until I can get it working properly, but I don't know how to troubleshoot this, as I don't know what process is even responsible for the power-off. How can I go about finding out why the monitors bring themselves back up, and why my windows are rearranged?
