comment Can I build a laptop from scratch?
@Idigas: I did mention your "empty" cases. I just didn't enumerate what they did not come with like you did. I still would say no, because that is the answer to the question most people are asking, "Can I build a laptop from scratch semi-easily and economically?".

comment Why is my webcam choppy in ubuntu?
The internet is certainly not the problem, since it does it even in offline applications, I have a fairly quick connection, and the other side of the conversation is crystal clear. I also doubt it is memory: I have 3GiB, and am using <1GiB.

comment How to test which button is stuck
Since the keyboard in question is a Dell laptop, I suggest NOT trying to remove the keys. I have never been able to replace a key once it came off a laptop keyboard.

I agree. At one time I had it the way I want, but after a reinstall I don't know how to put it back.

My settings are like yours, but I still get a password. I changed my AC power to blank screen, and the password box comes back. Lock screen is unchecked in Screen Saver. I am fine with suspend wanting a password.

comment Can I drive two external screens from an 'Alu' iMac?
This isn't optimal, because the DualHead2Go makes the two external monitors act as one. The computer sees the normal monitor, and then another big one. This prevent behavior like maximizing to just one screen, etc.
