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 have installed Ubuntu as wubi (next to windows 7). When I expect the computer to shut down (either to hibernate or as part of, you know, shutdown), it doesn't. All the programs end, I am logged out, but I still have a picture on the screen (ubuntu default picture).
Suspend leaves the computer running but kills all un-necessary process (If you have a browser window up or program it will leave that running) and blanks the screen, Hibernate stores everything in memory and pretty much shuts off the computer, But when you resume it will start back up from memory.
I blacklisted rt2800pci first (meaning it won't be loaded in the future), then removed it right now with the 3 commands above. The computer froze as a result of the last command, but after boot it finally did what it was supposed to do.
Success! My computer finally understands how a shutdown works!
