Power Manager Gauge Not Showing Up

I just clean installed Vista on my T61 and installed the ThinkVantage Utilities that I wanted. The only issue is that the gauge for the Power Manager hasn't been showing up, even after that option is selected in the options menu of the software. I installed the last ThinkVantage software about a week ago, so it's pretty up to date. Any ideas?
