To be clear, bryan installed the 'laptop-mode-tools' package.

This is WRONG.

laptop-mode-tools works out of the box on all architectures. The main
purpose of the package is to set the laptop-mode automatically (to
integrate it in debian). 

In Bryan case, I am not sure. Perhaps '/etc/init.d/laptop-mode start'
needs to be invoked once if he has not restarted his computer since he
installed laptop-mode-tools.
