[systemd-devel] idle daemon sleep

In Windows 8 and later the group policy service (and maybe other services
as well, I couldn't find any info on that) can go to sleep to save power.
Do you think a similar feature could be implemented for systemd?

The Group Policy Client service will sleep when the Group Policy service is
idle for more than 10 minutes.

*What value does this change add?*

Group Policy processes approximately every 90 minutes, by default. Setting
the Group Policy Client service to sleep in between processing helps create
better performance for client computers.

*What works differently?*

Group Policy background refresh starts as a scheduled task, not as a
service that continuously checks to determine when it is time to run the
background refresh. The scheduled task model requires less overhead
processing, which creates better performance for client computers.
