| I tend to agree, but unfortunately the powersave people know nothing about

I'm not in a hurry, we can wait until changes arrive  8-)

Anyway what we, laptop users, need is a kde applet where we can configure 
(through a graphical app) the following:

-suspend/resume options (it should write/read /etc/default/acpi-support),
-laptop_mode settings:
	-hd: spindown, readahead
-cpu settings:
	-governor to use when on battery/ac
	-max & min speed when on battery/ac (I'm a linux-phc user)

What do you think?  8-?
