What happened to gnome-power-manager applet??

I'm running Fedora 16 and I'd like to run Fluxbox as my window manager on my laptop. I need the applet that shows the battery status to run as well. But I can not find the name of the applet anywhere. Others have reported using gnome-power-manager, but there is no application named gnome-power-manager in fedora 16 that I can find. There is a rpm package called gnome-power-manager, but the only executable in it is gnome-power-statistics.

When I run gnome shell and the applet is displayed, if I do ps, I see nothing that looks like a power monitoring applet. The only processes that seem to have anything to do with power is upowerd.

If I run gnome-session-properties, again I see nothing that looks like a power monitoring applet.

Can anyone please tell me where the battery monitoring applet on fedora 16 is found. This is frustrating me very much.

This is what I saw.
Code:
Name        : gnome-power-manager
Arch        : x86_64
Version     : 3.2.1
Release     : 1.fc16
Size        : 1.8 M
Repo        : installed
From repo   : anaconda-0
Summary     : GNOME power management service
URL         : http://projects.gnome.org/gnome-power-manager/
License     : GPLv2+ and GFDL
Description : GNOME Power Manager uses the information and facilities provided by UPower
            : displaying icons and handling user callbacks in an interactive GNOME session.
I personally think this does not have as much functionality as the old power manager in the old gnome.

It does not since the applet is no longer included in it and I still can not find it. This is why I dislike gnome.
