(speaking about my HTC One XL, which is one version of sense behind, but I doubt they removed functionality) you should be able to set what you want power saver mode to do, including but not limited to turning data off, decreasing screen brightness, and others. Should be accessible in settings (again, I'm not on this software but it should be similar) around where power saver mode is.
