And SUSE already does this with openSUSE 10.2 release.

Powersaved is, or at least what it was, is kind of dead. The suspend
infrastructure provided by it will be removed by me these days. It was
just kept because we wanted to have a fallback in case we will not be able
to use pm-utils for openSUSE 10.2 for whatever reasons.

What powersaved is in 10.2 and will continue to be is a policy manager for
systems without X, same as kpowersave or gnome-power-manager, just without
a graphical user interface.
