With a different icon set these are clearly different programs. One of them is xfce4's native power manager which I can right click on to get a menu. The other one gives me no info at all when I click it. I have grepped through 'ps auxwww' output and all kinds of things but I simply can't figure out what this other power manager is so I can stop it. I've also looked in my startup but I can't see anything there either.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for your reply. Gnome's power manager isn't installed but the following things are:

Is there some way I could be running two versions of xfce4-power-manager? Maybe one of the other packages is running the notification bar thing? Hmmm, strange.
