I am about to do a blog post+screencast. With that, I'd like to say that I am 
probably one of the guys who takes it more seriously, so I usually don't like 
to introduce changes which cause your PC to consume as much energy as half of 
the United States.

Last time I'm being polemic on this thread, but to me it seems that people who 
"take power management seriously" still need to get a clue about what a user 
space daemon can do, should do, and how. I still haven't found a "you're 
right" after a thousand times I've been explaining the only real saver you can 
configure is brightness, and this kinda concerns me. One thing is caring or 
taking seriously, one thing is knowing what one is talking about, and I would 
love if this discussion had been more informed from the start.
