Advanced Power Management (Daemon): is a daemon able to trigger actions
upon receiving power management daemon. You can use it to perform the
actions actually done by pbbuttonsd, but even more ...

For example /etc/apm/event.d/anacron is a script that start anacron only
when you connect your laptop to a power supply. Apmd each time a power
management event is received look in /etc/apm/event.d/ and invoke the
scripts found there with arguments describing which event occured.
