> Going back further, the critical element of the highly productive "naming and shaming" that powertop generated was that powertop provided a simple way to quantify the problem, providing concrete evidence that, say, application XYZ was misbehaving.

I don't think these stats are in GNOME System Monitor yet but on Mac OS X these kinds of stats just landed in Apple Activity Monitor so they could start the naming and shaming process for Mac applications. It would be nice to put these stats in the common GUI system monitors because then they are visible to a wider audience and there is more pressure from users to fix applications.

I am quite sure gnome-power-manager displayed wakeup stats at some point. However, some "cooking" was required to make sense of them.

gnome-power-statistics is the tool you're thinking of, part of gnome power manager, yes.
