Thanks for the suggestion, disabling gnome services fixed my two issues:

 * The second battery icon dissappeared - only xcfe4-power-manager shows now.
 * When I resume my laptop from suspend it no longer goes back to sleep immediately.

So my guess is there is some gnome service causing both issues.

The problem is that I now get prompted for my SSH key passphrase every time I ssh anywhere, which was the reason I started gnome services in the first place, I think.

So I have three more questions for the list:

 * Does anyone know which gnome service is causing the battery icon and how I turn it off?
 * Should I file a bug and which package should that be against? Seems very similar to these two bugs:
 * In the mean time how do I manually start the gnome service that manages my ssh keys properly?

Thanks for your help and time.
