Power mgnt in the UI? Or are we only talking about a few nice config windows? I don't like a VFS or Power mgnt module which depends on Gnome / KDE / whatever.

All the heavy lifting is done by HAL now, so g-p-m is acting just as a policy agent, just like gnome-volume-manager does.

Have a look here : http://gnome-power.sourceforge.net/ for more information.
