Just a heads up, CTRL-ALT-BKSP does not just log you out, it resets the X
server, which is why it's so effective at resolving your issue.
Perhaps it's possible to disable popup notifications on the battery
utility? Or write a small script that unloads it, loads your game, and when
you exit the game, reloads the utility.
