Bug Description

During the upgrade to 16.10 it seems that the installer disabled my low battery notifications and actions. However after installation was complete it didn't re-enable them. Now I no longer get notifications nor is any action taken on the thresholds set in DConf.

Things I have tried:

 - Reinstalling gnome-power-manager
 - Reinstalling indicator-power
 - Reinstalling libnotify-bin notify-osd
 - Checked and altered settings in DConf - they're all still there, just seem to be ignored.

None of this worked. I'm obviously quite worried as don't know what will happen if I leave my laptop to run down the battery.

I downloaded and installed and tested many mainline kernels, right up to and including 4.9.0 rc2. None of these fixed the issue. Nor it seems is any action taken, I've gone right down to 6% without the OS taking any action.
