The big difference is on XO-1.

With the exception of wake-on-multicast for salut collaboration, there
have been no coordinated improvements in that area so I'm surprised if
you notice anything. Good news anyhow.

When this has been discussed before the answer has been "no". Any
deployment is going to want to save power even when on AC because of
the electricity bill (remember we aren't just talking 1 laptop). And
moreso because the laptop can't detect AC vs another power source. I
don't see any new arguments this time around.

Nevertheless I think you can configure this in the powerd config.
