Comment 33 for bug 1330037

As requested by Jackson Doak (noskcaj) I have tested MATE 1.8.1 against the upower transitional PPA below.

From `mate-applets` the Battery status panel applet works correctly. `mate-power-manager` and `mate-session-manager` continue to work together to provide suspend, hibernate, lock and resume functionality just as before. No regressions as far as I can determine.
