Thats actually right but the laptop-mode-tools do more than simply adjust 
virtual memory management. It does foreign jobs too which collide with other 
programs and that have to be removed sooner or later. I'm still in touch with 
the author abut that.

Due to this problems pbbuttonsd comes with it's own laptopmode script which is 
a simple copy & paste from the kernel tree 2.6.7. I will remove this script 
and change pbbuttonsd to use the laptop-mode-tools after some basic 
compatibility and responsibility issues are clarified. Until then pbbuttonsd 
will support the laptopmode out of the box without additional packages.

 Best Regards
