comment Tab-completion friendly names for start / stop
@DaveSherohman, To be clear: as I said in the answer "Another way is to use a predefined functions like these", means the OP can name the functions with different names, not including [start|stop] words... eg. rc-s() , rc-t() ...

comment Hibernate speed, and hard drive temperature
What OS ? It sounds like a problems with hibernation file/partition... You can also check the reallocated sectors count on the hard drive. And how much are 2.75 years :) ?

comment After reinstall grub, it looks for menu.lst in /boot/boot/grub folder?
@Patric, grub is always looking there, these are the default locations, the fix suggested by mlp is actually the commonly used practice in most linux distributions. For some reason the link is missing in your installation and probably the files are not in the right place. Note: now that you confirmed the menu.lst location, I'm sure this is default location for (at least) most linux distributions. About why it is different than the normal install... perhaps there are different installation methods when grub is installed by OS installator and when you install it via package manager.

I believe the default location is compiled (hardcoded) in the grub binary. You may be able to check it with this command: strings $(which grub) | grep menu.lst (this may prove me wrong on my answer, if so, I may edit the answer with more details)

comment Why my multiparted .tar unpacs just partly? (missing files)
It may be the splitting function of 7zip or the tar of 7zip, have you tried w/o splitting the file. Another option would be to try with the real tar

Yes, that's the whole point of changing the CWD of different drive ;)

comment How do you use regular expressions with the cp command in Linux?
Not much in this case. Alternate syntax for xargs would be 'xargs cp {} destination_folder'. standard cp syntax takes one or many sources and one destination in the end, when you use -t option, you can specify the destination after the -t, then use the rest of the line for sources. I just find the -t option more convenient in this case. In the other example the {} is replaced by what is piped to xargs (stdin), in this case the filename.

comment Terminate child processes on ctrl-c
Yes, of course, I missed the point here. But now that you mentioned it, why not remove the '&' (send to background) from the "rdp &" line, and leave it on foreground, this way when X terminates your script will get killed (with it's children too).
