I removed the MeMenu from the top bar in Ubuntu. I was thinking it would only remove the shutdown button, but it appears they are bundled together as one widget. Anyway, anyone know how to get this back on the menu.. I don't see it in the "Add to Panel.." list.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

It's called the "indicator applet session", you need to have the "indicator-me" package installed.

Some how I lost the "Hibernate" option in the power down icon in Ubuntu 10.04. Just re-installing package "Indicator Applet session" did not restore "Hibernate".

Here is the solution which restored that item to the drop down list.

Using Synaptic Package Manager, I found the following three packages which I re-installed.

"indicator-me" "indicator-messages" "indicator-applet"

Having these re-installed, I then re-installed "indicator applet session"

rebooted the computer and did a login and the "Hibernate" option was now in the drop down menu list.
