Powermanagement: you need "pmud". 


To display powerstatus you can use "GKrellm" with the PMU Plugin:

GKrellm: http://web.wt.net/~billw/gkrellm/gkrellm.html

trackpad:  I use a utility called "trackpad" from the pmud distribution 
to disable tap-click. And "xset mouse 2 10" helps a little to make the 
trackpad somewhat usable.

I have no problems to download 2.8 (src, rpm, ...) from
