comment How do I set up SSH so I don't have to type a password, and without using a public key?
Aah, the old PSU passdisk. Such pleasant memories. I was quite happy with password auth. Why haven't you asked the campus computing folk (was CAC when I went there) instead of reaching out to the 'net? I mean, c'mon, they have a Debian mirror. They're not all clueless Windows-only admins.

comment Lazy umount or Unmounting a busy disk in Linux
Think of it this way: the disk is no longer busy - unmount it now. It's no longer mounted so nothing else can write to it. It's "do this when you can" instead of erroring out.

Try updating the BIOS as well (updated my answer to suit). XP may pick up newer BIOS power saving.
