Fedora 37 KDE Plasma 5 wayland crash

I’m using the KDE spin and every time I try to switch to wayland (via the login screen) and afterwards the screen hangs and either sddm restarts or I have to restart the service manually.
I have tried to debug it by setting WAYLAND_DEBUG=1 as env in .profile and the funny thing is, that the wayland didn’t crash after the reboot, but it was incredibly slow.

If I remove the env it runs at normal speed till it crashes (about 3-5 secs after the login).

My system:
Operating System: Fedora Linux 37
KDE Plasma Version: 5.27.4
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.104.0
Qt Version: 5.15.9
Kernel Version: 6.2.11-200.fc37.x86_64 (64-bit)
Graphics Platform: X11
Processors: 4 × Intel® Core™ i5-6500T CPU @ 2.50GHz
Memory: 15.0 GiB of RAM
Graphics Processor: Mesa Intel® HD Graphics 530
Manufacturer: HP
Product Name: HP ProDesk 600 G3 DM

I think the core dump here is responsible for it but I’m really not sure: https://pastebin.com/v1RWCd0a

I have a 400mb log from the session with the debug env and a 2mb log from the crash today.
I could upload it to some filehoster (which one is allowed here?) or maybe you can tell me what I should search in these logs.

every bit of help is appreciated.

Thank you very much

Update: Based on the coredump the powerdevil was the problem and I took a look at it.
Removing it seams not to be an option because fedora sees it as hard dependency for kde plasma.
BUT since I set the powerprofile to max, it seams to be stable.

wish me luck
