Bug Description

When the battery warning is presented, the text reads something along the lines of "your battery is critically low, and your computer will hibernate soon if you dont plug it in". The user is then given the option of OK or Cancel. As all they can do is acknowledge the warning, there seems to be no need for the cancel button to be there?

This functionality has moved to the power plugin of the gnome-settings-daemon in Gnome 3. So will need to be patched here. Changing package to gnome-settings-daemon

In precise there is no prompt at all. There is just a normal notification message.

This does not match the design: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NotificationDesignGuidelines#morphing
