How to setup Laptop Power Settings-Kubuntu

I can't seem to find a power management utility in Kubuntu Hardy. I want to setup my laptop so that it sleeps in certain instances, hibernates in certain instances, and shuts down in certain instances. It should be dependent on plugged in or battery, low battery, time outs, etc. I found such a manager in Gnome but not Kubuntu.

Appreciate any help.
