The default power options are near useless for a laptop. I'm getting about an hour and half in battery time on my Vaio, where with low power settings in Vista I can get nearly five hours.

What I need is a power manager in Ubuntu that will let me;

-Control screen brightness
-Control CPU usage
-Create different power "profiles" (IE, high performance, power saver, balanced, etc)
-Control USB port powering
-Show an accurate battery reading

Is there a power manager out there that will let me do all this? Or at least most of it?
