This sounds like launchpad bug #951827, which has had a patch for the last 3 months but doesn't seem to have made it into an update yet. As noted in comment #2, when it gets in this state you can workaround the problem by killing gnome-power-statistics from the command line:

kill `pidof gnome-power-statistics`
