Bug Description

According to bug 1193222, comment #13, I need to install powerd in order to get the screen to sleep on inactivity if I use Mir (the default for Saucy) as display manager.

But if I try to install powerd, modemmanager gets removed:

till@till-twist:~$ sudo apt-get install powerd

The following extra packages will be installed:

The following packages will be REMOVED:
  modemmanager
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  libhardware2 libhybris libmedia1 libubuntu-application-api1 ofono powerd

Abort.
till@till-twist:~$

This means that I can either have the feature of the screen going to sleep or cellular data support, not both.

powerd recommends ofono because it triggers certain behavior on call connects and disconnects
This control should be moved to another service.

To workround install powerd with --no-install-recommends
