The GPS icon only shows in the task bar when an application is using GPS.  There is the traditional route of going through Settings>Location & security>check/uncheck the Use GPS Satellites box. 

 

I can't seem to find the Power Control Widget on the XOOM.  I use Widgetsoid for power control on one of my phones, so I'm using that on the XOOM now, as well.  With this widget, you can select a GPS toggle that can be right on your home screen.  HTH
