Isn't pbbuttonsd obsolete now?

Yup, and HAL (does ppbuttonsd even run with HAL polling the same
hardware?). It also breaks spectacularly with fast user switching and is
PPC specific. I'm trying really hard to remove the product and
architecture specific daemons such as tpd and pmud as in my opinion they
do not fit the modern user-centric session experience.

You can use gnome-power-manager, guidance-power-manager or kpowersave
for this. I don't think it's a problem having ppbuttonsd in the fedora
repo, just in my opinion nobody should need to use it.

Hardware should "just work" from the base install IMO.
