The policy is stored in g-p-m (gconf, per user) and HAL just does the
information processing (battery.time_remaining) and method heavy lifting
(Suspend, Hibernate, SetLCDBrightness, etc.).

HAL doesn't enforce any policy at all. Without g-p-m running you won't
be able to "suspend after 15 minutes of inactivity" or any cleverness
like that.

I'm not sure the "without X" argument is that important (flame retardant
suit ON..) as the typical laptop isn't booting for very long. If we load
a headless g-p-m when gdm loads, then we have 99.999% of the time
covered.
