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 now using 13.37. Look at my post below.
I am using Slackware64 13.1 and every time I try to suspend my computer it looks like it "goes through the motions," but then it just goes back to the session lock screen. Here is the pm-suspend.log file.
I have just updated to 13.37, and now when I try to suspend using the "Sleep" button through KDE's menu, it looks like it "goes through the motions," but then it returns to the session lock screen. If I try to use pm-suspend as root through a terminal however it will successfully sleep. How can I make it sleep using the button through KDE? I have tried adding myself to the power group, but this does not help.
