HP T5735 with Debian

HP T5735 with Debian

(OP)
Hi all we have some HP T5735 thin client units that run Debian Linux, i'm starting to get the hang of Debian but i'm not really a Linux person (yet, hopefully that will change). I'm having trouble finding any sort of power management features so i'm assuming that i don't have the correct modules installed. Can anyone suggest what GNOME packages i should be looking for. I basically want to be able to set them to turn off when not in use as currently they just stay on forever.

I realise that this isn't really a thin client forum but the HP documentation isn't really helping.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.
 

RE: HP T5735 with Debian

There should be a package called gnome-power-management in the repositories.

I seem to recall that gnome doesn't let you set a custom command for its sleep scripts though, unless that has changed.
