In the Beginning...

So far, so good: I'm pleased with the upgrade to Lucid.

However, like some other users, I've experienced some start-up problems, particularly the dreaded Gnome-Power-Manager on restart.

A simple workaround if the system hangs on boot with a GPM error message:
  • Open the Configuration Editor (instructions)
  • Navigate to /apps/gnome-power-manager/general
  • Deselect the use_time_for_policy option
  • Close the Config Editor
No need to reboot for the changes to take effect and it seems to have solved my problem!

Thanks to dh04000 at the Ubuntu Forums for the information.
