Thinking about it, the reason I noticed the pop-up was there before the system hibernated was because I was clicking back and forth on different windows anyway at the time, meaning the power warning may have popped up just as I clicked another window, hiding it without me noticing.

If it's that easy to do such a thing though, then maybe the warning dialog should be a modal window?
