Bug Description

If the "Power Settings…" dialogue is already open, but in the background and covered by other windows, it is not raised when the user re-chooses it from the drop down menu. To reproduce:

  1. Indicator-power -> Power Settings…
  2. Open a maximised window (eg. Firefox) over this.
  3. Indicator-power -> Power Settings…

What happens:

  4. Nothing

What should happen:

  4. The dialogue-box should be raised to the front of the window stack and receive focus just as it would when selected the first time.

This applies to:

  Power -> Power Settings…
  Sound -> Sound Settings…
  Date Time -> Date & Time Settings…
  User -> Online Accounts…
  User -> User Accounts…
  Session -> System Settings…
  Session -> Displays…

I get a notification that proves that the shell is aware of the window being presented.

I think this is a unity design decission: the window manager controls it, you can ask for your window to be presented and the shell decides to react by showing a notification instead of stealing the focus.
