I manage wireless with wpa_supplicant.conf right now. There is wpa_cli,
but I've found it less than useful in general; you just have to trust
your priorities for networks.
If you're willing to run NetworkManager, you can define your own
wireless connections and then use nmcli to connect to them.
For power management, just get yourself access to UPower and you can
suspend and hibernate without getting root privs by using DBus. UDisks
can manage disk mounts (there are tools that do things
automatically). You could, alternatively, set up autofs to mount
external disks manually upon entering a special directory (e.g., cd
/mnt/usb/fat/sdb2 will mount sdb2 as FAT and set perms for my user).
This solution only works for one user (though you could set up
directories so that the uid is a parameter and /mnt/usb/fat/1000/sdb2
mounts things so UID 1000 gets full access). If you'd like to know how
to do this, I can post my auto.* configs.
