https://maemo.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=1046 raised as an RFE.

I've asked for two seperate AC and Battery settings, plus independent brightness settings for AC and Battery. I also mentioned adding support for screensavers which should probably only kick in the device is on AC power.

Going beyond this, I've asked for timed and/or "environment" based power management profiles. Probably getting a bit fanciful here but why not - it's very do-able and would make sense in several circumstances, and would also give Nokia the leg up over Win Mobile! :)
