System admin tools


Hi, I have just installed Ubuntu 11.04 and am enjoying the look and feel but I cannot find the sys admin tools. For example, how to configure power settings and stop the screen saver coming on every 5 minutes.

Many thanks in advance.

My apologies for my oversight. Well, Ubuntu 11.04 desktop is quite different to 10.04. Whereas to get to administration tools is under it's own menu, in 11.04 you have to go to the shutdown/restart menu to see "system settings". That is where all the admin tools can be found.

I hope you find this useful.

Cheers
