comment How do I check whether I am using KDE or Gnome?
@AndrewM: makes sense to me, Unity isn't exactly Gnome. And thanks for the info!

comment Why does the cursor jump to a random place unpredictably while I am typing?
It's a Lenovo G550 laptop with Windows 7 x32.

I didn't notice it happen in other programs (I would have certainly mentioned it if I did), but 95% of my typing goes on in Word so it's a moot point. What info about my laptop do you deem relevant?

comment Hibernation: computer shuts down completely, but powers back up in a couple of seconds
I've tried the steps from the guide 1 by 1, and finally have fixed the issue. What helped me was powercfg -devicequery wake_armed command. I've disabled "Allow this device to wake the computer" option for a couple devices, and turned out keyboard was causing this. I think it's some kind of BIOS bug or a motherboard hardware fault, because I wasn't touching the keyboard.

@zelanix: checked the log around hibernation entry, nothing suspicious.

@zelanix: fair enough, but shouldn't I be able to disable wake-up timers in BIOS setup? Also, I wouldn't know what to look for in the event log.

@zelanix: I didn't check the event log, what's the point? The problem clearly happens after Windows shuts down entirely. It's very persistent for me so far, tried like 20 times during 2 weeks and it happens every time.
