Question Power management in '' mode. How?

Both Gnome and KDE (and others) have power management options such as setting sleep timer or deciding what happens when you close the lid of a laptop.
But if you are running linux at run level 3 (no gui) how to manage power options?
I am interested insleep timer (on AC), doing nothing when lid closes, and setting a hibernate when laptop is on batter.
Thanks in advance for any help.

I believe the actual work for power monitoring is done with a systemd service (or a more normal daemon server). The Gnome/kde options just communicate with it for control functions.

Something like what is discussed in
