There are two or three different Preferences and possibly
administrative settings that all have to agree on exactly what you
want where.  on is having a notification area on the panel, which you
do, one is setting up the power settings for the right displays, and
there's a third one that actually controls what gets displayed in the
notification area when you want a power applet there, but that's as
