Btw your arguing over a trolls point get over it, KDE and GNOME both good projects personal preference.
Is there still the option of using bum to kill off all power management like at current? Use my laptop as a desktop 99.9% of the time dont need power management
Decision for this is stupid
That sums it up nicely. Gnome 3 is awesome, but this is bullshit. What are they smoking? Well hopefully enough people moan so we get a checkbox to end this nonsense.

I don't trust the defaults because I don't trust the developers to understand my use cases. Plus I have more than one use case. What I want my laptop doing depends entirely on where I am with it. At some point, that's going to have to be configurable.
But they can do what they want, I'll be using Unity anyways, and Canonical knows how to make a good UI.
WTF!? They obviously don't care about alienating users like they did in the past, by removing features. This has to be the stupidest boneheaded design decision ever!
...back to their old ways of pissing off users by removing valuable features..
GNOME is the BIGGEST TROLL IN ALL OF GNU/LINUX SOFTWARE..
Gnome users don't need to change any of Gnome settings.
What could possibly go wrong with that?
Again dude, I am not trolling. I have worked on every DE on linux and I feel gnome to be best suited for me. I was just stating my opinion.

Doesn't there exist a general configuration screen with power management settings?
If not, they are missing something that should be made.
Honestly, I don't see any problem with that. Go AFK and walk away fro a few minutes? Which retard closes the lid during that time?
Either leave it on and keep the lid open or shut it and suspend it.
If one really thinks that causing heat-related defects is a good idea, he can add his laptop to the blacklist the blog post is also talking about.
