Don't need to be so harsh Richard
Ohh, it wasn't meant to be harsh, sorry if it came out like that.
if done right with a nice D-Bus API a policy enforcing daemon can be
pretty much scriptable or configured from an init script as asked as
well as used from any other kind of UI. It may be an utopian view but
we will get there, yay :-)
I'm not sure what policy you would want to script really. DPMS is likely
set to off, you don't have lids on servers, and you really don't want a
server auto-suspending on idle :-)
You can't also change the brightness, and makes little sense to run a
server with laptop-mode. You probably don't want a server to immediately
power off or hibernate when you press the power button, so I'm really
not sure what a server version of g-p-m would do...
