Hello!
I have a problem I can't resolve.
I restarted my pc where was opened GNOME session and next time GNOME haven't started. Just showing some startup applications ( Skype and notify window "the configuration defaults for the GNOME Power Manager have not been installed correctly. Please contact your computer administrator").
Here are some logs that could be helpful:

In Xorg.0.log everything seems ok and there are no errors.
There is a fact, that GNOME starts successfully from another user (root). So the problem could be in user settings or some unclosed sessions. Do not know what to do from logs
Thanks in advance!

Ok. I solved this for my issues.
The solution was found on the ubuntu forum:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1082257
What I've done is:
mv /myuser/.gconfd/saved_state /myuser/.gconfd/saved_state_backup
Then I had a completely recovered GNOME session on a next boot.
Moreover, it seems for me that saved_state could be completely removed in this case.
I'm going to go try that and see if it works
