Not all arches support power management. Maybe there should be a sysctl which indicates whether the kernel support power management. /etc/rc.d/powerd could check this to see if starting powerd makes sense. How does powerd determine the power states that are supported?

powerd invokes the scripts /etc/powerd/scripts/sensor_* and it is the scripts' job to decide what to do.
