Had the same problem where powerd would hang my HP Pavilion dv8000
system. I worked arround the problem by using the following in
powerd_flags="-a maximum -b maximum"
Of course this makes powered do nothing when on battery. What I think
is happening is that powered is too aggressive in downgrading the
clock speed, that it eventually sets the clock to a value that is so
low that the system stops responding.
