I don't think the two cases are quite that similar. In one case, Emacs is interacting with a file or directory interface provided by the Linux kernel; in the other, Emacs is communicating with a program called "pmset", the implementation of which, in theory, doesn't have to be tied to any particular OS kernel.

(And, BTW, the "-g ps" arguments given don't seem to do anything on my laptop running 10.3, kernel 7.9.0; I don't know if that means it's just not a supported option on my laptop for some reason, which would seem kind of strange, or if the "ps" option wasn't added until 10.4.)
