I am sorry for a long break. I started afresh and created a new 'test' user once again.

Re: power manager icon does not show up in systray

On further chacking, I find that when I click the mouse over the panel, where the power icon is meant to be (but is not visible), the label 'power settings' shows up. On further clicking, I find that the Pwer Management screen opens up, but under the heading "Battery", it is all blank.
