A lot of additional features that many Linux users may be accustomed to are not portable across other Unix-like operating systems.

Graphical power management applications are among them.

Does OpenBSD have some kind of built in power management interface? Say, ACPI settings in a config file somewhere?

My specific problem: OpenBSD allows me to install gnome-screensaver, which is great, because I like my screen to be showing cool graphics when I am not using the computer. However, after the screen saver comes on, something (Gnome? OpenBSD?) eventually shuts the monitor off. This saves energy but defeats the purpose of having cool screen savers. Normally I'd go to the gnome-power-management interface and just adjust a setting to prevent the monitor from powering itself off.

So you want to control monitor power settings? that's entirely different, Xorg is usually capable of handling that independently of the OS.

You could add the following to your .xinitrc/.xsession file:
Code:
...
/usr/X11R6/bin/xset s off
/usr/X11R6/bin/xset -dpms
...
This disables screen blanking and DPMS, which is used to suspend the monitor.. if it's a laptop you may not be able to disable screen blanking, I'm not entirely sure.

For other power management functionality from userland, the apmd(8) daemon accompanied by the apm(8) utility can be used to manage ACPI/APM, for a laptop, there is a sysctl to control lid behaviour.

I do not believe that is what the OP was asking, they were specifically asking about Linux power management features exposed by Gnome.
