What is xfce4-power-manager?

This software is a power manager for the Xfce desktop, Xfce power
manager manages the power sources on the computer and the devices that
can be controlled to reduce their power consumption (such as LCD
brightness level, monitor sleep, CPU frequency scaling). In addition,
xfce4-power-manager provides a set of freedesktop-compliant DBus
interfaces to inform other applications about current power level so
that they can adjust their power consumption, and it provides the
inhibit interface which allows applications to prevent automatic sleep
actions via the power manager; as an example, the operating system’s
package manager should make use of this interface while it is performing
update operations.


Release notes for 1.0.3

Martin Pitt (1):
      HAL has been deprecated and unmaintained for a long time now, and
isn't being     installed by newer distros any more, so it's time to get
rid of the HAL     brightness backend entirely, so drop it.

Ali Abdallah (5):
      Fix compilation error with --disable-polkit, patch from
