How can we define idle? Do we take into account:

1. CPU
2. Disk activity
3. Network activity

arch/driver/system-independent way?

Why do we need profiles? Can not the veto stuff automatically set
different modes through logic?

Is what I've done currently the right sort of profile thing or is there
a better way.
