    Exclamation Auto-Mounting Partitions, Power Management and Indicator Applets

    Hello Ubuntu Community!

    I've recently made the switch, replacing my Windows 7 installation with Lubuntu 13.10 (x64) - after making a few modifications and customizations, I can say I am very pleased with this sytem! However, I have come across a few issues with the system that I can't seem to find a solution to.

    Issue #1 - When partitions are automatically mounted on login, authentication is required (SOLVED):

    I have set two partitions to auto-mount upon login, as they are depended on by both my music manager (Clementine) and Steam (I have my steam directory installed on another hard drive). However, I am required to input my password after I've logged in to allow the automatic mount to take place. This is a small inconvenience, but one that I hope has a simple fix.

    Issue #2 - Xfce Power Manager doesn't do anything (SOLVED):

    Lubuntu comes with Xfce Power Manager as the default power management application. It automatically starts up - I can see it in the task manager. However, I have set my displays not to go to sleep ever, but they do. The settings I have set withing the power manager are ignored/do not work, even though the service is running.

    Issue #3 - Indicator Applets (SOLVED):

    The indicator applet panel item does not seem to change it's background colour to the colour of my panel - see here (bottom right):

    Is there a way to either make the background to the indicator applet transparent or change the colour manually?

    Thanks for your support everyone!
