    Power icon

    I've just installed WINDOWS VISTA BETA 2 - BUILD 5384. Everything seems fine,
    except the power icon. The problem is that windows allows me to active the
    time, volume and network icons in the notification area of the taskbar, but
    not the power icon. So i'm not aware when the battery is low. Can somebody
    help me with this problem?

    Thaks!!
