My understanding was that the power-cog was supposed to turn blue when updates are available. But I've noticed that the updates-manager icon appears on the launcher with updates and my power-cog never turns blue. Also the envelope-indicator never turns blue when i have new emails.
Are these bugs? Was I mistaken in expecting this? Is there something I need to do to activate the "blue" functionality?
