UI-wise, this would probably be better off as a button than a checkbox.

Personally, I'm more inclined to a checkbox. Why is "turn wifi on/off" not an action? Right now, I don't see the big difference.

Independetly of the modifier keys Meta + or Alt + Ctrl + , why don't we assign both ASWD and the arrow keys ←↑↓→ to move between the VDs?
There's probably a global alternative for a reason and I don't see any other action to be assigned to one of those in the near future. That way both parties would be happy.
If a user requires one of those hotkeys for a different action, it can still be changed individually.

Since the most common problem that people have is "the OSD gets in the way when I change the volume while playing a video", how about only changing those OSD styles for the "volume" and "brightness" and leave the rest as it is with their characteristic appearance and visual distinctiveness?

Are states > 100 or < 0 really well defined? Is it save to assume that a state > 100 can be associated with 100?

Yes : this is a percentage. States out of this value are bad hardware : I have a travel battery which shows crazy values along time, from 0,001Wh capacity till 901Wh (Real capacity is near 45Wh).

X files (Y hidden) can be misleading if X >> Y, for example 240 files (3 hidden) could be interpreted as there are 240 files from which 3 are hidden.
Maybe a X files + Y hidden is more obvious.

alexde added a comment to D24379: [energy kcm] Fix Technology values.

As this it not in the scope of this patch, those values look suspicious to me too:

switch(model.battery.type) {
case 3: return i18n("Internal battery")
case 2: return i18n("UPS battery")
case 9: return i18n("Monitor battery")
case 4: return i18n("Mouse battery")
case 5: return i18n("Keyboard battery")
case 1: return i18n("PDA battery")
case 7: return i18n("Phone battery")
default: return i18n("Unknown battery")

Is there a special reason for the weired order? Is it correct that case 0 and 6 are missing and default to unknown? Maybe (I haven't looked deeper into it) this needs another patch.

I think we should use #1ed4e5 for the color instead since that's what the official logo uses. Normally, I'd say to use a similar Breeze-like color, but mimetype icons are a mess anyway and I don't think it's worth worrying too much about unless Breeze's official color palette is expanded.
