10.6: Set power saving modes on laptops via Terminal
Authored by: sredlums on Jan 13, '10 01:21:39PM

Just out of curiosity; why would you want to do it with a terminal-command?
I guess it's nice that it can be done, but with tips like these I just fail to see why you would want to go through the trouble of remembering the exact command and carefuly typing it in, instead of just doing it 'the nomal way'? Can anybody enlighten me?

10.6: Set power saving modes on laptops via Terminal

Simple... I use Marco Polo to change the system between two locations (home and work). In doing this, I have certain server shares set based on location, certain default printers, etc. When at work, I am always using the power outlet; at home, the battery. With this command, I can script changes in sleep time and such (e.g. at work, I want it to wait longer before sleeping, or whatever). Trivial, yes. Useful, I guess it depends on your OCD...
