    How can I conigure the Power-Manager

    Facts:
    Laptop HP Pavilion g6-1b67ca running
    knoppix 6.7.1 from USB flash drive.
    Boot with cheatcode "nomodeset" (for graphic card reasons.)
    "gnome-power-manager" installed version 2.32.0-2

    Hello,
    ...still working on my Laptop/Knoppix Project. Now I installed "gnome-power-manager"
    with Synaptic P.M. but I can't configure it.
    I expected to find the GUI either under
    --->Menu --->Preferences or under
    --->Menu --->System Tools/Accessories
    but I couldn't.
    How can I configure the power-manager for my machine?

    Edit: More Info
    Under --->Menu --->System Tools I found Configuration Editor.
    Under the tab "apps" I found the "gnome-power-manager"
    Changing the check marks there has no impact. I can not adjust the brightness and/or
    hibernate/shutdown time if running idle. After closing the lid the cooling fan keeps
    running and drains the battery really fast.
    What is to do to shut-down if idle for more than x minutes?

    Asus 1000H. Knoppix 7.
    I am looking into this as well. Closing the lid seems to have no effect. And yes conserving power is a high priority. However screen brightness can be varied using the allocated keys on this system.
