comment Windows XP don't show login screen after opening laptop lid
@dx486 that would not help - the keyboard is working (the caps lock, num lock etc. change the leds). So, is it better to keep the lid open or close it? My intuition tells me that it is better to keep it open, sometimes the Dell didn't hybernate when it was closed.

@dx486, is it better to close the lid after unplugging the cord, or keep it open? In which case do I actually have more chance to get hybernation? Sleep won't happen.

comment Windows XP don't show login screen after opening laptop lid
@dx486 Win+L doesn't work either :( Yes, this was my idea as well, I tried it for some time and I got the warning alert telling me that the battery is almost out and I should plug in the power cord, but nothing happened in next 15 minutes. So I am afraid that the hybernation won't be triggered, despite it normally works.

comment how to use HTTP over all computer? on windows and ubuntu
@BigChris this is not true. For example firewalls can enforce proxying without applications being aware of it. There will probably be ways how to enforce this fw behaviour on localhost.

comment Skype pending messages
1) I used outdated skype for a long time and had never had this problem. Everything works, but not this. 2) Do you see the pending message indicator yourself in the current skype version?

https tag should be in tag and maybe also in the title (as it is in the duplicate question) people will use it to search

comment Continually getting https Certificate Errors on all browsers
I had the same problem and this was the issue! I had my date set one month ago (August instead of September) and it caused the above error! I discovered it just by chance...

comment Why does FileZilla ask for password every now and then?
But I don't want to save the passwords!!! That is a BIG SECURITY FLAW!!! There are many viruses that go after saved FTP passwords to hack websites!
