The Latest Power Manager

The latest power manager is competing with the previous one to be the 
silliest one of all. It is getting sillier and sillier to use the piece 
of abomination especially when it has no exit button, I do not (which 
part of not is difficult to understand??) want to use it. Now I have no 
way of telling it to do nothing. Unplugging the power puts it in suspend 
mode immediately. Considering that the wireless (Broadcom bcm43xx) is 
not mature enough (starts with network disconnected balloon), it is an 
immediate pain in the butt to reactivate it. Also, since the wireless is 
built into the Kernel, no way to get rid of that one either!!

Please give it a rest and include a button to exit from it so that I do 
not have to 86 it every time I start the computer.  BTW, in case it is 
not clear, I am using this on a laptop.
