Well, I've written an extensive article on Power Management in GNU/Linux
for the MyOSS Magazine (http://mag.my-opensource.org) I think it was in
the 2nd Edition.

Perhaps of interest is also SOftware Suspend 2 (Edition 1) as well as
the newest kid on the block gnome-power-manager (Edition 4) which is
unfortunately gnome-specific.

Take a look and let me know what you think.
