    Battery Icon Missing?

    I'm using windows vista on a notebook, and today I discovered that the icon
    that used to be in my notification area next to the clock, that showed me how
    much battery I had left is missing. I've tried looking through the control
    panel and other areas, and can't figure out how to get the icon back. Anyone
    know how? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    what does it indicate if the power option is no selectable? i.e. greyed out.
