I was wondering if anyone knew of a good power management app for my Kali linux installs? Back in the day I was running Jupiter on my Ubuntu rigs then ...

Good power management app for Debian based OS?

Depends on Hardware in Debian.
Is this wanted for the Acer Aspire ZG5 you just got?
Since kernel 3.4 the necessary modules are loaded automatically
Suspend on lid, shutdown on power button
Some people needed to install the kernel named "linux-one" in order to make this work properly. On the D250 (and possibly others), if the bios has not been updated to the latest (see elsewhere on this page for how to update the bios), then the 'lid' event is broken in the sense that it always reports 'closed' and it will continue to send lid events once triggered (thus blocking out power button events). In short, if you have problems with getting acpi events to work, update your bios.
See acpid for more information.

At the risk of Bricking my zg5. I upgraded my bios to version
Machine: System: Acer (portable) product: AOA150 version: 1 Mobo: Acer model: N/A Bios: Acer version: v0.3310 date: 10/06/2008
upgrade mine using linux to extract the files to usb. The only things I extracted and copied to a fat32 usb were
biker@biker-laptop:/media/722B-1465$ ls FLASHIT.EXE ZG5IA32.fd
I followed the steps from
If it bricks yours, oh well, not my bad. I did this just cuz I am not afeared.
I'd md5sum the download, then re-download the zipped bios again and md5sum
that one to make sure bios download file integrity was cool first before attempting
something like this. I'd check the 2 md5sums against each other and make sure
I had a exact match. Just me covering the bases.

I was looking for something to run on my HP NC6400's and NC4400 that I'm running with Kali Linux 1.0.6. It's Debian based so I'm sure there's something that's a .deb or that I can do with sudo apt-get install from Terminal.
When I put Ubuntu/GNOME on the NC6400's I use TLP but for Debian you're suppose to add stuff to source list and do a bunch of stuff. I'd rather just try the simple approach first then if I can't find anything I'll gedit into source list and mod it and jump thorough the hoops, LOL.
The ZG5 is running great, that little Atom and SSD just sips the power.
