There have been bits of power management in Darwin CVS since public beta.
PB could put some (but not all) powerbooks to sleep, had temperature/ICTC
control, etc...

However, AFAIK, the current Darwin CVS lacks all the support for recent
machines. Looks like almost all of the "platform expert" code that
contains driver for the Apple custom ASICs have been removed from the
kernel tree (it's beeing moved to separate drivers) and didn't yet show
up in the IO tree.
