How to access better/more advanced power settings in Ubuntu/Linux Mint with Gnome 3

Gnome3 on Linux Mint/Ubuntu comes with a pretty bare-bones power manager. Luckily, there’s a better alternative and it’s called dconf-editor. Here’s how to get it and use it for power management purposes:

$ sudo apt-get install dconf-tools
$ dconf-tools

The relevant settings can be found in org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/power
