    Given that emacs now has a nice timer mechanism, I believe it is
    inevitable that over time there will be more, not fewer instances
    of such wake-up and do some work behavior --- all of which is
    nice on a desktop, but a pain when you're on a plane with a
    laptop that is running out of power.

Maybe Emacs could open /proc/acpi/battery to determine that it is
on a laptop, and DTRT automatically.
