Hi,

I found at least one action that starts the gnome power manager (even after I've disabled it from the startup session). When I open the update manager and click either "Check" or "Install Updates", the gnome power manager is automatically started (even before providing a password). My guess would be that it's the authentication agent that does it (polkit-gnome), since it's at the point of authentication that it gets started.

This might be related to the update manager warning to plug in the a/c power before performing an upgrade. (I don't know if something there is hard-coded to use specifically the gnome power manager.)
