You are ASSuming of course that power management is the problem.

I'm confused.  Isn't one of the reasons we run Linux to tinker with
the hardware and software?  Let's say I have some hardware quirk that
causes my MythTV setup to bork.  Am I better off giving up on the
hardware that I already purchased and buying a Tivo (and accessories)
because I am spending too much time on MythTV?

He's running Asterix because he chooses to run it.  It is his choice.
His effort might come in handy elsewhere.  Since when is it your job
to police what another person does to his/her computer in the privacy
of his/her home? :P
