gnome panel applets and "hot corners"
I'm running Fedora 10 on my new NC10 and couldn't be happier.
In the process of customizing for reduced screen space I somehow got ride of the power meter and network applets on gnome panel.
So there's no way for me to see (quickly) my battery status, or get up the program that lets me choose my wifi connections.
I've tried but I can't find where they are, and they aren't one of the options in the "Add to Panel" list.

Second, the top right corner of my screen has become analogous to one of the OSX "hot corners", when the mouse goes there all the windows are shown for selection. I find that really annoying and can't find where to turn that off.

Thanks for your patience.

Wireless no longer works. I'm not sure if this is related to the disappearance of the network manager applet.
I still get the prompt for the password to the network I've been on. But it doesn't connect. I can't find more details anywhere.

solved the applet issue, it's the "notification area" of the panel that includes several items including networkmanager-applet. i was trying to get rid of the bluetooth icon and didn't realize i got rid of them all.

an answer to the "hot corner" issue would still be appreciated!

Better late than never
There is a utility called BrightSide that will do what you want. In Ubuntu, just search for brightside in the package manager. I'd imagine it's similar in Fedora.
