"Another power manager is already running" Xfce issue


Everytime I boot up my Eee PC which has Fedora 11 with Xfce 4.6.1, I get the error:

Quote:
Another power manager is already running.
Once I click OK to that, I notice that the notification area isn't on my taskbar, when it was when I logged out. And yes, I do have the checkbox marked for "save session for future logins". Well, to fix this, I have to add the notification area back to the panel everytime I turn on my netbook.

If the netbook is plugged into the AC adapter, there one plug icon showing that I'm on AC power, but if I'm on the battery power, it shows two battery icons.

I don't understand this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Does XFCE has any screen where you specify which programs to run upon startup (I know Gnome has it)? I don't have much experience with XFCE but it seems there may be two entries for power manager and both are trying to run causing this. You can investigate on these lines.

I'll check it out. Would it be in some type of configuration file for startup items?
