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 am using Mandriva Free 2007 on Toshiba Satellite laptop. I have KLaptop installed and setup. Is there someway i can specify the setting like turn of monitor after XXX time, but not hardisk or processor or turn off hardisk after XYZ time etc?? Toshiba providees such utilities with laptops but they are only for windows.
Note the idea is to save power.
Thnx... but i have seen the configuration there but is there some way to turn off the monitor only without effecting the rest of the system, like for when i am sleeping and the system is downloading some thing??? The profiles there dont have any way of mentioning that? or is there??
Also, can you please tell me what is the difference between kpowersave and kloptop? which one should be used???
