This is similar to the wild talent feat.

You do not, however, gain the ability to manifest powers simply by virtue of having this feat.
I suppose you could simply alter this feat to grant you a single 1st level power as well as 2 power points. You could also make your class levels now count as Manifester levels for the purpose of calculating power DCs and effects.
This was already covered with Psionic talent (which is better because it increases each time it is taken.)
you gain two extra power points. These power points are added to your power point reserve.
Psionic Talent [Psionic]
You gain additional power points to supplement those you already had.
Having a power point reserve.
When you take this feat for the first time, you gain 2 power points.
You can take this feat multiple times. Each time you take the feat after the first time, the number of power points you gain increases by 1.
I like this but if you make manifester level = character level then there is no need to double it. However, like your other ideas, it's already been covered. Take a look.
you gain one power whose maximum level is equal to twice your manifester level.
Expanded Knowledge [Psionic]
You learn another power.
Manifester level 3rd.
Add to your powers known one additional power of any level up to one level lower than the highest-level power you can manifest. You can choose any power, including powers from another discipline’s list or even from another class’s list.
You can gain this feat multiple times. Each time, you learn one new power at any level up to one less than the highest-level power you can manifest.
I dig this, if PP charges over time an increase in the rate of charge sounds fun. Do the characters have to meditate to charge or does it naturally refill?
psionic talent, character level 9th.
You regain power points at the rate of one per three quarters of an hour.
You can gain this feat a second time, increasing the regain rate to one per half hour.
Maybe make meditation a requirement to regain PP, then you can make a feat to allow characters to recharge PP without meditation.
Just my 2cp...
