If you check his link, that's what he's referring to with "power save over 

It seems pretty basic to me, nothing worth commenting about as it's 
ordinary xorg.conf functionality that was there long before it was even 
xorg.conf (while it was still xf86config), but then, I've been handling 
manual X configs since I was forced to do so back in late 2001 to get my 
(then) triple-head setup working in Linux as I switched from MS Windows 98 
instead of upgrading to eXPrivacy.  But I imagine it might be worth 
commenting on for someone who has just discovered the manual config method 
after struggling with an uncooperative GUI for awhile...
