true. but, and not to sound lazy,but its an extra step i have to take. i'd much rather figure out how to turn it off.
hey, let me ask you something... i have an athlon 2400+, 512MB DDR SDRAM, and a Radeon 9500... an almost similar box as yours. anyway...when i leave my box on for a while i'll notice some major slow down when i wake up the box. in particular, mozilla turns to a gray color, and my shell takes a while to wake up before i can even type anything.
does, or has this ever happened to you? i ran top, and i don't see any major CPU/Memory usage. i dont' know if this is a X problem, or if i've been hacked and there are some services running i don't know about. but it seems like the only way to temporarily remedy this is to restart the box.
