Can do..Where is the git file located is it in the xfce repos or does
xubuntu have it's own repo for the file

Please update your system, the latest release of xfce4-power-manager is version 1.0.10-1, which should resolve this issue for you. Let us know what happens with this latest update, please?

I'd say it's not fixed. The stacktrace from Bug #813454 looks pretty similar (more detailed though, might be worth sending it upstream), and the description says it occurred on 1.0.10.

Still happening on Oneiric Beta 1 with version 1.0.10-4.

Same here with current oneiric. Actually, this happened quite often in the past days, always shortly after awakening the laptop from suspend state.

happend for me too in 11.10. It happened after plugin off the power-adapater on my eeepc 901

Happened to me in 11.10 right after i removed the battery. Standby occasionally crashes the power-manager too.
I use a Acer Aspire One A101.

this bug seems to be fixed for me. Anyone else still having this bug? or can this bug be closed?

No, this bug cannot be closed as fixed. I get this in the current oneiric stack (Architecture: amd64, Version: 1.0.10-4ubuntu1) quite often directly after bootup or suspend.
