I think it's a mistake that there is only one set of power management timeouts - there should be separate timeouts for battery and AC power.

With two power management settings you would specify much longer dim and blanking screen timeout values (perhaps even infinite) when the device is on AC power, but specify short values (perhaps 2 and 5 minutes) when on battery power.
