Description of problem:
Sometimes, the power preferences applet comes up blank.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open the Power Management Preferences applet from the System->Preferences menu

Actual results:
sometimes normal, sometimes blank

Expected results:
always normal

Additional info:
might require going into hibernate before exhibiting the problem
