You should read the changelog of the afro-mentioned package :)

$ urpmq --changelog pm-utils | head

+ Revision: 99676
- Conflict with laptop-mode-tools, its functionalities overlap pm-utils, and
  upstream thinks it should conflict

pm-utils upstream thinks that laptop-mode-tools isn't needed when
pm-utils is installed; and that users shouldn't install both of
pm-utils and laptop-mode-tools at the same time.

For example we had this bug in Mageia:

So, yes, the behaviour you see is the intended one, when installing
pm-utils >= 1.4.1-3.mga1, urpmi will tell you it conflicts with
laptop-mode-tools and asks to remove the latter. Since pm-utils is
required by many core packages, it's going to be hard to install
