The reason being for this is that I have two laptops and I would like to have battery some kind of battery information realtime without needing to pull it up manually.

I've actually had very few people make note of this. The reason I went the route I did was for the ancient laptops running very little RAM with low processor speeds. In those situations, every process counts. Amongst other things there's no system settings daemon and the final will not have login/logout sounds, all for the same reason. gnome-power-manager is very easily added for those wanting something more full featured.
I'll try and update mint-fluxbox-default-settings to correct this. I've seen probably a dozen workarounds for this, this one being the easiest to implement.
I'll definitelty put something in for cd ripping, call this an oversight on my part. I'd rather not put an audio recording program in by default as everyone who uses them seems to have wildly different needs. I think the end user can make a better decision about what works for them than I can.
- (2.10) - This update moves the Fluxbox submenu into the System submenu and prevents GNOME-MPlayer from showing up in the menu. After installing this update, in order to shutdown you will need to log out and hold F6 button, or shutdown from the command line (sudo shutdown -P now). This should only happen once and the system will return to normal the next time you start it. What happens here is replacing mint-fm2 kills the upstart process that reads the shutdown triggers.
- (2.11) - This updates corrects a few translations and removes references to the system sounds. Like the previous update, installing it will break the shutdown dialog until you restart the computer. Please restart by opening a terminal and typing "sudo shutdown -r now" or shutdown by typing "sudo shutdown -P now".

I believe that option is no longer available in Mint. Marking "all" upgrades can mark unstable ones as well. It's best to leave that to the update manager.
Clem removed that feature. I highlight the first update while holding the shift key, scroll to the bottom and click on the last update and right click and select mark for update, this marks everything and it's quick and easy.
