Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

The battery indicator is not reliably responding to changes in charger connection/battery status. This started happening recently (within last month). Strange behavior is that in Virtualbox the guest OS (Win 7 in this case) does pick up the power status correctly and quickly.

The other strange behavior is that the battery meter is unresponsive when left-clicked and then select the status (i.e. "Laptop battery is charged").

This is critical because it's also affecting the standby/hibernate functionality.

I tried restarting gnome-power-manager but it was unresponsive.
