The "Battery Monitor" applet is there just fine in my tray. And it's
suppose to hibernate at 4% power left. I'll try bumping that up.
I see now that my problem does not lie with the battery monitor,
but with a more general failure of my Thinkpad T520 running F21/KDE,
which strikes me several times a day,
and which means there is no reaction to clicking on icons.
I can still change desktops by Ctrl-F3 or whatever,
and can edit text, so keyboard input is not affected.
The only solution I have found is to re-start the laptop.
Actually, clicking the Restart button does not work in this context
(though it seems at first to be working),
and I have to change to a Konsole desktop and type "shutdown -r now".
If anyone can shed any light on this, or suggest a solution,
I should be very grateful.
