Xfce power manager error

I am running Slackware 13 (64 bit) and when Xfce starts up, a message box opens up with the error:

Xfce power manager
Unable to read AC adapter status, the power manager will not work properly. Possible reasons: The AC adapter driver is not loaded, broken connection with the hardware abstract layer or the message bus daemon is not running
dbus-daemon is running, so according to the error message the problem must be the AC adapter driver is not loaded, or broken connection with the hardware abstract layer. I am not sure how to go about trouble-shooting this problem. Any help is appreciated, thanks (:
