On my lap top computer, the power manager icon is in the icon tray and shows me the status of the lap top's battery. It also shows me the charge state of my Iphone when it is attached via USB. On my desktop, the icon doesn't show (desktop doesn't have a battery, I know), but when I go to system settings -> power, my Iphone shows up when it is connected. Is there a way that I can have the power manager icon show in the icon tray either all the time or at least when the Iphone is attached? My Iphone is my network interface and I can't see if it is charging when I'm on the computer because it is up on a shelf out of view.

Thanks in advance,
