By GPM I'm guessing you mean gnome-power-manager? So each desktop environment
needs to implement this? Does gpm run before login so that it is configured
properly at login time? Who's needs handle it for KDE, LXDE, XFCE, etc.?
I still don't feel like there has been adequate discussion on where in
userspace this needs to be handled. So far all I've seen is what appears to
be a GNOME only solution. I'll CC the KDE list to at least get another
perspective in here.
