my past research, I had a lot of data on how laptops got used, and
primarily it was networking, not power that mattered:
So I went on to do a util that looked at system context and changed
things, network, power, screen saver, etc. depending upon what it
thought was happening

localhost proxy which relayed stuff as approprite.
