The power management daemon for Linux. Very necessary for laptop users, it lets you shutoff services as power fades, thereby giving you more time to do whatever it is you do.

Tip for laptop users: do you think you can just run out to Walmart and buy an extra battery and/or charger cable? Probably not. I had a cable fail and didn't even notice that I wasn't charging till the machine warned me it was about to shut down. I had to drive almost an hour to a store that did have the cable in stock. Now I have two extras, which I probably will never need, but..

Who am I kidding? Because I spend $70.00 to buy the extra set, it's guaranteed never to be needed. Or if I do ever need it, I won't remember where I put it. Right?

A refund for defective software might be nice, except it would bankrupt the entire software industry in the first year. (Andrew S. Tanenbaum)
