Hi Curt,

it's always a good idea, after installing a package, to read
/usr/share/doc/$package/README.Debian, if existent.

If you do that for powersaved, this whole issue is explained there in

And as already outlined earlier, for new installations, the default user
is automatically added to groups like powerdev (power management),
netdev (network-manager) and plugdev (mounting of removable devices).

On a upgrade this is unfortunately not possible to do in an automated
fashion, as we can't know, which user is the default one.
So the only option is to document the necessary steps, which is usually
done in a README.Debian file.
