Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I want to use laptop mode and remount my journaled filesystems with long commit intervals... anyway this is ok with my /home filesystem, but when I try to remount my / filesystem, nothing changes.
That is, I do:
mount -o remount,commit=600 /dev/dm-1
but then the output of mount shows nothing about the "commit=" option, while for /home this works.
dmes and /var/log/messages log nothing when I execute this command... is it possible at all to remount the root device with a non-default commit interval?
Thank you for your answer. No, also your suggestion does not work.
Yes I know 10m is maybe too much, well it's only an example, no other value works anyway. I do want journalling, but I want to disable it whenever I want, for energy saving (and curiosity). And changing the filesystem type on-the-fly is not possible anyway, so it's not suitable for laptop-mode scripts
