help please: logs, or something, printing constantly when I resume from suspension

Hello, very new user here. Running LXDE on OpenSUSE. My problem is that I'm enjoying learning within the full command line interface, using the CTRL-ALT-F1 one, but if I put the computer into suspension, after I come back it starts printing line after line of what looks like a log, but really what I'm not sure. It's a lot and I don't know how to copy/paste from there to here, but the beginning looks like:

[####.#######] SFW2-INext-DROP-DEFTL IN=Wlan0 Out= MAC=... etc., etc., ...LEN227

Like two lines of this, intermittently, and it really interrupts what I'm trying to type. HELP please!

Those are your services starting up and doing what they are supposed to do. If you are using a GUI using the alternate ttys such as crtl+alt+f1 will show a lot of stuff that is happening in the background. The next time you are booting your system from switch to one of these when you are seeing that normal loading screen and you will probably see alot of the same messages come up.

All of these should be logged in your /var/log/messages file and is something you really shouldnt concern yourself with. Just either let it do its thing or use a different tty such as ctrl+alt+f2 or f3 as they are usually not used as much, or if you are feeling really brave look up how to change your run level and run your system in run level 3 which only gives you a cli and you wont run into that problem as all of that stuff would still be happening on the alternate ttys but you would have a cli up for your main tty.
