2.7. GNOME Power Manager

GNOME Power Manager is a daemon that is installed as part of the GNOME desktop. Much of the power-management functionality that GNOME Power Manager provided in early releases of Fedora became part of DeviceKit-power in Fedora 11, renamed to UPower in Fedora 13 (see Section 2.6, “UPower”. However, GNOME Power Manager remains a front end for that functionality. Through an applet in the system tray, GNOME Power Manager notifies you of changes in your system's power status; for example, a change from battery to AC power. It also reports battery status, and warns you when battery power is low.
