Thanks, I haven't been able to check with gnome-power-manager yet, just 
wanted to provide a link to another bug report. Seems to be the same thing:


It's marked as resolved but should not be a problem in 4.6, so I'll just 
wait for that. I can close this later when I confirm that it works in 4.6.
