NAME

       powernap  -  have  the  system  "take  a power nap"; this can be a user
       defined  ACTION_METHOD  in  /etc/powernap/config  among   [best-effort,
       suspend, hibernate, poweroff, powersave]

DESCRIPTION

       powernap will run when powernapd(8) has determined that an action needs
       to be taken according to its configured parameters. The  action  to  be
       taken, among [best-effort, suspend, hibernate, poweroff], is determined
       in /etc/powernap/config. By default, the action will be best-effort.

       When   the   ACTION_METHOD   is   best-effort,   and   if   the    file
       /etc/powernap/action  is  executable, then the powernap binary will run
       it when called. Otherwise, powernap will run one of:
         * pm-suspend
         * pm-hibernate
         * poweroff depending on your hardware's capabilities,  as  determined
       by pm-is-supported(1).

       You may do one of:
         1)  Write  your  own  custom  at  /etc/powernap/action  and  make  it
       executable
         2) Replace /etc/powernap/action with an executable script or binary
         3) Symlink /etc/powernap/action to some other  executable  script  or
       binary

       When  ACTION_METHOD is powersave, then powernap binary will execute pm-
       suspend.

       When ACTION_METHOD is powersave, then powernap binary will execute  pm-
       hibernate.

       When  ACTION_METHOD  is  powersave,  then  powernap binary will execute
       poweroff.

       When ACTION_METHOD is powersave, then powernap binary will execute  pm-
       powersave  and  pass  an  argument  (true) to execute all the available
       scripts at /usr/lib/pm-utils/power.d/ and /etc/pm/power.d/. The  latter
       will contain scripts shipped with powernap.
