There is also guidance-power-manager which we use in Kubuntu. It uses HAL for 
suspend/hibernate/cpufreq/lid/battery support. Buttons (laptop and also 
multimedia keyboards) are handled by consistent mapping to keycodes (on 
kernel/hotkey-setup level) which are then mapped to XF86Xxx keysyms which are 
properly assigned to appropriate handlers (kmilo for volume and shortcuts, 
amarok for multimedia controls...).
