I installed 'laptop-mode-tools' package (debian etch), and that's all
I did regarding power management. Never bothered tweaking it; I use
the laptop plugged in mostly anyway.
Don't know what distro you're using. Ubuntu appears to have both
'laptop-mode-tools', as in debian, and 'laptop-mode', which I haven't
a clue about. Fedora appears to have 'laptop-mode-tools'. You might
find these useful?
The only thing that really annoyed me about the laptop was the system
bell. I couldn't find a way to turn it down, and it was set of often
by apps, so I blacklisted the module.
[maglor: ~]$ tail /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
This isn't a great solution, I'll admit. Here are the some of the
things I tried before blacklisting:
[maglor: ~]$ grep -i bell /etc/inputrc
set bell-style none
[maglor: ~]$ grep -i xset .xsession
gnome-control-center -> Sound -> System Beep: unchecked 'Enable system beep'
But none of these solved the problem.
