Where do you put a power saving script in Jaunty ?

I need this script to be processed at start, when I unplug ac, when I plug it, when I suspend, when I get back from suspension and when I shut down/restart the notebook.

In Intrepid I putted it in:
/etc/pm/power.d
/etc/pm/sleep.d

but it wasn't run in all the cases I needed to, especially from suspend and restart.

Thanks for the help

I'm having the same problems. Any help is appreciated.

UPDATE:

With some help from this thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=6902870&postcount=34), I've found that the scripts can be put into subfolders in "/etc/acpi". It seems that every event has a scripts folder. I've decided I want my scripts to run on events "AC connect", "AC disconnect", "Startup", and "Resume". (This may be too many places or too few, but I haven't seen and problems yet).

So, the old

sudo install 99-savings /etc/pm/sleep.d
sudo install 99-savings /etc/pm/power.d
becomes


sudo install 99-savings.sh /etc/acpi/start.d/
sudo install 99-savings.sh /etc/acpi/resume.d/
sudo install 99-savings.sh /etc/acpi/ac.d/
sudo install 99-savings.sh /etc/acpi/battery.d/


This may or may not be the same functionality that sleep.d and power.d had in 8.10, but the script is now executing for me.

/etc/acpi/actions/lm_ac_adapter.sh
