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
Thanks to dh04000 at the Ubuntu Forums for the information.
