Just remove it from the panel and use
$ killall xfce4-power-manager  to stop the running instance.

You can use gapcmon to display the status.
(It should be included in your apcubsd)

Be sure you have a systray area active on your xfce-panel
Run $ gapcmon

2 Information Panels will open.
Select "Preferences"
And check the boxes for "Enabled", "use TrayIcon" and below the Add
Remove button you will see another "Use Tray Icon" select it.

You should now see to new icons in your systray, left click once on
each of those icons and the "Information Panels" will be minimized to
the systray.
