I am liking on 4.14 how panel #2 auto-hides when you have something behind it and it is in focus.

That is a lot more convenient than having something sitting on the top edge of it and shrinking the window. I used to just remove the 2nd panel, and might still, but that seems like a good improvement.

4.12 can auto hide as-well there is a setting in panel properties.

Maybe so, but I tend to not stray too far from default, and it seems to have become default with 4.14.

Scaling how?

There are a couple of CPU panel plugins that are for Xfce. xfce4-cpufreq and xfce4-cpugraph.

Warning, those pages might be outdated, but the plugins are still maintained.

i meant, a plugin that can adjust the cpu frequency. Something like:

http://cpuspeedy.sourceforge.net/

is this why my switch user, suspend, and shutdown options are greyed out and unusable now, in both my user and root accounts? i installed 14.2 a month or so ago and everything was working fine until an update about two weeks ago took the functionality away. i have had this happen in a debian install a few years ago, but that was with gnome and the root account still had the option there. holding the power button down is not good from what i understand.

upower is NOT likely the problem. It is almost 100% some user end config problem. Like maybe you didn't use a updated config when upgrading packages? I install Slackware 14.2 and current multiple times weekly on a testrig and have not seen any issues that you describe here.

Even my own Xfce-4.14 build works flawlessly on -current with the old upower.

you mean:

when my monitors go to sleep, sometimes when I wake them up, I am not able to type in my password on the lock screen
I have something like this
1) when opening a suspended laptop: black screen not waking up; (the laptop is set to suspend when the lid is closed) in that case I close the lid and open it again (and sometimes another 'again' if the 'suspend' cycle kicked in instead of the 'wake-up' one); and
2) just a black sleeping/unresponsive screen (not locked like you describe); in that case I try 'CTR+ALT+F2'; this brings me out of X to a new login screen. Pressing 'CTR+ALT+F7' tends to bring X back where I was just before...
(I have not installed xscreensaver; that always hangs on me)

To shutdown, you can always (as su):
Code:
# shutdown -h now
man shutdown for more options.

Thanks for the feedback. I am disabling the screensaver lock from startup for now, see how that goes.
