Summary: on-the-fly power management

I got two responses, one of which claimed 2.5.1 did not have power management
(it's on the Updates CD), and one which thought it was doable on the fly, but
nothing concrete.

It turns out that it did work, in spite of pmconfig claiming
/dev/pm: No such device or address. (One of the 2.7 machines wouldn't
suspend, though. Go figure.)

The answer I was hoping for was along the lines of:

Install SUNWpm* and SUNWcpr* from the updates CD, run drvconfig, and
it'll just work

Can any real human beings hear me out there?
