Re: [Utopia] Gnome Power Manager, updated screenshots

Will a UPS have an option in the combo box?

If so maybe "While on battery backup" would be suitable?

The wording in the combo box seems awkward to me (American English speaker).
I would be more comfortable with the following:

"While on power adapter" would be better as "While plugged in" or "While plugged into power outlet"
"While on batteries" would be better as "While unplugged" or "While using batteries"

What do others think?

I still don't like that idea of a combo box. You still can't see all the
options on one go...

"Hibernate (to disk)", and "Sleep (to RAM)" just doesn't do it... What
about "Sleep to disk" and "Sleep to memory"?
