Bug Description

I'm not sure if this is a feature or not but pressing Fn+F2 on my Samsung NC10 doesn't show the remaining battery time in an OSD notification as it did in Natty and earlier. Instead, that key combination opens gnome-power-statistics which isn't a very quick way to check battery status. I'm aware that the remaining battery time can be shown in the panel but I'm used to Fn+F2.

I added the regression tag since this didn't happen in Natty and older.

Dropping the regression tag, that seems rather a GNOME behaviour change than a bug
