wireless-tools, acpid, anacron and hibernate should be on any pc, not
only laptops.

I would also install powernowd or cpudyn (I prefer powernowd). It saves
a lot of battery power, giving more time when unplugged . The problem
with it is that you have to load different modules depending on your cpu
to make it useful. cpufreq-userspace should always be loaded (for
powernowd) and another module depending on the cpu: speedstep-centrino
for most laptops without an amd core (a look to /lib/modules/`uname
-r`/kernel/arch/i386/kernel/cpu/cpufreq would give hints). Nowadays,
more than 90% of the laptops I see work with speedstep-centrino

Hope this helps.
