Hey Milo,

Thanks for the heads up. That was, and after a discussion today it
was decided to drop those changes and go back to the same wording as
upstream. This affects the strings shown in gnome-power-manager, but
also in gdm, indicators and gnome-session. 

This also means that if the strings were already translated upstream you
won't have to do anything else, as when the package is uploaded, the
strings will also be imported and translated in Launchpad.

Please do check the gnome-power-manager to see if the translations are
ok just in case:

Note that it will take a while from the time of sending this e-mail to
the translations to be actually imported. Making a guess, I'd say they
should be imported by tomorrow.

As far as I know, documentation had not been changed, but in any case
I'm CC'ing the docs team so they are aware.
