You should check the gnome-power-manager settings and or perhaps the settings in sessions or your panel applets.
The app gconf-editor which I referred to is attached below:

Thanks Seve. Yes, I am NOT running a laptop, but a desktop, so this battery issue is really an annoying red herring. Interestingly, when I opened the Gnome configuration editor I did not find the full list of applications under the gnome-power-manager that you had (specifically, the "battery_percentage_low" entry, among many others). I had no ability to fix things this way.
However, I managed to fix the problem using only mildly desperate measures. First, I noticed a kernel update (2.6.19-1.2895.fc6) and began by installing that. I then removed the package "gnome-power-manager" and then immediately reinstalled it. The problem then magically disappeared after a reboot. I can't say whether the kernel update had anything to do with it (I think not), but the trick seems to be a reinstall of the power manager. It worked for me anyway (on the 64bit FC6).
