This usually means that one of the packages you are using produces
\special commands for PostScript rather than for PDF.

If that package has a .cfg file or a pdftex driver option,
then you should adjust your coding to specify that pdfTeX
is being used, rather than dvips .

If there is no such option available, then you just have to
live with it. Is there anything noticeably missing from the
PDF files that you are producing ?
If not, then you can safely ignore these warnings.

2 (or more) partial page-builds are getting the same name:  page.1
This is a natural consequence of what TeXpower does.

The warning is harmless.
I think it can be suppressed in a later version of pdfTeX and/or texpower.sty ;
however you can safely ignore it with earlier versions.

Hope this helps,
