comment Is it okay to use sleep mode for my laptop all the time?
It can be related to it, because I unplug my computer for the night, so then the battery has to step up to maintain sleep state, but you are right, I'm interested in the generic long term effect of sleep mode on the hardware which includes all parts, not just the battery.

@DavidPostill some comments mention the battery, is it bad for a battery if it is used all the time? Though my laptop is usually plugged in, so the battery may not be active in this case.

@Dmitry Grigoryev I don't know, 10% may not be a negligible difference in a system in the long run

comment Is it okay to use sleep mode for my laptop all the time?
@DavidPostill updates are installed once a fortnight or so and then I lose the desktop state, but the computer is not powered down even then, because after a restart I rebuild the desktop state and use sleep again until the next restart, so the laptop is under some power all the time. This is the question if it has some negative effect on the hardware in the long run

@Dmitry Grigoryev he talks about sleeping when transferring. I'm interested in sleeping even when the computer is not used for a longer period of time. E.g. putting it to sleep for the night, every night, without any exception

comment How to determine process for unclickable floating window?
I forgot about this ghost window (I got used to it being there) and I suddenly noticed it's not there anymore. I didn't notice when it went away and why. I leave the question here nevertheless in case people have further ideas what process it belonged to.

Also tried to change the resolution. No effect.

comment How to determine process for unclickable floating window?
@DavidPostill it's not a menu, it's a window. I tried start/stopping Desktop Window Manager Session Manager though, as it suggested in the answers, but it did not help. It looks like it belongs to a living process and that's why it doesn't disappear.

The name of the relevant face is diff-refine-change. You should tweak its color.

@Stefan yes, there should be a size limit, but most patches are not huge, so it would work well in >90% of the cases. And in the rest of the cases it would simply print "the diff is to big for automatic refining" and the user could visit the interesting hunks manually as today. But in the majority cases automatic refining would be a big help and a useful enhancement

@Stefan the simplest solution would be to add a function which walks through the hunks automatically and therefore highlights them. It's pretty trival. auto-refine-mode already highlights the current hunk, so this function walking through the other hunks when auto refine is enabled could highlight all hunks trivially.

@Stefan ah yes, of course, I just copied the code from the net and I wasn't thinking. Also, it only highlights inline diffs in the first hunk and you actually have to visit further hunks to highlight them. It would be nice if there were a builtin "refine all hunks" command which did it automatically.
