battery and power troubles

Hi there,

Just installed Debian 7.1 Wheezy and Trinity on a Lenovo W500

The tray icon that usually shows my power status is there, but gives 
only a tooltip, "No information about battery and AC status available"

Looking at kcontrol > KDE Components > Service Manager,
I see that in Load-on-Demand Services, Laptop Battery Monitor is not 

I am able to see the power status and battery readings in 
/sys/class/power_supply, for both AC and BAT0

How can I get that service loaded?
