I've tried the solution from here The "power cog" has disappeared but that doesn't solve anything, I have indicator-session installed but the cog is gone still. Is this a know issue at this stage and will it be fixed come release day?

Just run killall unity-panel-service and the panel will restart (bringing the cog back).

very true - but it is still off-topic since it is a beta transient issue... – fossfreedom Sep 26 '11 at 15:23
Perhaps we should have a tag for those issues so that they are answerable as long as the problems exist, but also easily removable when they become obsolete? – Jo-Erlend Schinstad Sep 26 '11 at 15:51
I would like to see something like that but I'm sure most people would disagree. – RolandiXor Sep 26 '11 at 16:16

This happened to me today actually. You probably has just downloaded an update. I did and after that the cog disappeared, then after a reboot, it came back. You can follow what Roland Taylor said to kill the panel service which restarts it to fix it.

And most importantly... Keep in mind... It's a BETA release :)
