Unfortunately there is not a good official power manager for Ubuntu like Windows but there is a unofficial power saving program for Asus EeePC Netbooks that works for other laptop well. Jupiter is an appindicator designed to improve laptops / netbooks battery life. It can be used to switch between maximum, high performance and power saving modes, change the screen resolution and orientation, enable or disable bluetooth, touchpad, WiFi (if available) and so on.

Install Jupiter using the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/jupiter
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install jupiter

Have a nice time.
