Bug#303600: ITP: gnome-power-manager -- tool for user configuration of power management policies

Severity: wishlist

  Description     : tool to provide user configuration of power management policies

  <DRAFT based on website info>
  GNOME Power Manager is a GNOME session daemon that acts as a policy
  agent on top of the Project Utopia stack, which includes the kernel,
  hotplug, udev, and HAL. GNOME Power Manager listens for HAL events and
  responds with user-configurable reactions. Currently it supports
  UPS's, laptop batteries and AC adapters. Its goal is to be
  architecture neutral and free of polling and other hacks.

  The main focus here is the user interface; e.g. allowing configuration
  of power management from the desktop in a sane way (no need for root
  password, no need to edit configuration files) - including using
  existing desktop-level frameworks for lockdown etc. (e.g. g-conf)
