I do have these debian packages installed:

forrest at makemake:~$ dpkg -l | grep xfce4 | grep power
ii  xfce4-power-manager        1.2.0-5            amd64              power
manager for Xfce desktop
ii  xfce4-power-manager-data   1.2.0-5            all                power
manager for Xfce desktop, arch-indep files
ii  xfce4-power-manager-plugin 1.2.0-5            amd64              power
manager plugins for Xfce panel
