lenny: get battery icon in icewm?


I have just installed lenny on a notebook. I would like to use icewm as my 
main environment.

I want to see a battery status icon. However, icewm's built in APM/ACPI status 
does not work.

The only app that I found which can show the icon is kde's 
guidance-power-manager. However, starting it manually takes a LOT of time, 
and starting it from ~/.icewm/startup surprisingly does not work at all.

Ideally I would want guidance-power-manager's features (CPU frequency 
policies, suspend, hibernate), just with a normal startup. But a mere battery 
icon will also do.

Yours, Mikhail Ramendik
