This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Are you referring to ubuntu 11.04? – enzotib May 9 '11 at 13:05
@enzotib, I am. – Oxwivi May 9 '11 at 13:05
I cannot understand why my answer, given before, is not accepted. You don't ask for power preferences, do you ask? No problem anyway :) – enzotib May 9 '11 at 13:41
@enzotib, I'm sorry, it's because the answer is simply more informative. I don't care about the power manager part, but what I found useful was the commands that allows you to see the package behind the application. – Oxwivi May 9 '11 at 17:54

The Package for gnome-power-preferences is gnome-power-manager. The Package for gnome-control-center is gnome-control-center

 $dpkg -S /usr/bin/gnome-control-center
 gnome-control-center: /usr/bin/gnome-control-center

 $dpkg -S /usr/bin/gnome-power-preferences 
 gnome-power-manager: /usr/bin/gnome-power-preferences

It should be gnome-control-center, I think.
