comment slow program response: mainly notepad++
I recently upgraded, and in the release notes it was talking about an unstable plugin, but then again, I have updated now. Also I added no plugins. Well, thanks you anyway, I will keep on looking. Perhaps someone also knows some tool on how to get better insight into what causes this.

comment slow program response: mainly notepad++
Even though I like notepad++, I now tried it vs Sublime, which I also like but had not installed on that particular PC. With the same files open, it is a lot faster than notepad++ when going from minimized to normal. Perhaps I will give it a try, though it does cost money. I wonder if problem was there before and I just never cared because system is just a notebook (slow HD, SSD caching being completely unpredictable).

No networked files but files in an encrypted folder (cloudfogger). I already disabled the "check open files for update" option in nopepad++, but still got the delay. (I always have same working files open.) I will try for a while with those files closed.

comment Gparted cannot resize extended or LVM partiton
Thanks! I also needed lvm lvdisplay to get the exact device for lvextend, and later df -h to find out the volume on which to resize.

comment How to keep a hard drive from going to sleep?
For external HDs where I cannot control the power down settings, I started using keepalivehd.codeplex.com and am satisfied. You can put the time-period to slightly below the period before the drive powers down. In your case (internal), you have control of the settings directly, like outlined in the answer below.

comment Windows counting connections from localhost for connection limit - how to circumvent?
It is a Windows Active Directory environment. Still, I suppose the name resolution comes from the DNS server in the network. (I am not that familiar with that..)

comment Why is VNC on Windows so slow?
@barlop Thanks for clarifying. Stil, links are broken.. do you have this info? I was having this problem before, and would have used it if available, now I went for VNC as a workaround.

Looks like there is a new link (links here are broken), like andrewblock.net/2010/02/23/… . Anyone tried this and can especially report on the remote assistance (which does not lock the screen)?

comment Windows 8.1 fresh install with Windows 8 licence
Thanks for the hint of using an illegal key and later on using the legit one. Way to go, Microsoft, locking paying customers out with their legal keys.
