Running Hardy on a Dell D430.

I've installed the laptop-mode-tools upstream deb package from the maintainer's website on his suggestion. It's seems to be widely acknowledged that good laptop power management in Ubuntu is broken.

With the upstream Debian package, things appear to be working but I'm unsure what should now look like when using laptop-mode for power management. Most people suggest commenting out/removing the hdparm commands and changing $LAPTOP_MODE to auto.

Can anyone confirm that all that is needed is:

function laptop_mode_enable {
    $LAPTOP_MODE auto

Thank you
