"powersave -u" for example. There is surely some weird dbus-send command
that can also do this, but i always just use the powersave command line
tool (wich AFAIK only calls the respective HAL methods in the later releases
and does not use or need a running powersaved).

Maybe packing some wrapper scripts around dbus-send into pm-utils (or HAL)
packages would also be a good idea, but i never had the need for that thanks
to the powersave command line tool :-)
