Well, we shut off automatically in order to keep the battery healthy,
so there's no user involvement needed there.

I don't currently do anything in userspace on low power, but the feature
of "shutting down should save state" is targeted at 8.2, and I think the
Sugar side is done; I just need a way to trigger the state saving from
OHM when power is low.  I've added the request to #6014.

Thanks,

- Chris.
