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!

It's a Lenovo G550 laptop with Windows 7 x32.

comment Why does the cursor jump to a random place unpredictably while I am typing?
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.

comment Why is dwm.exe using so much memory?
That's not the whole answer. I have best appearance set in the settings, and dwm.exe usually takes 80-100 MB of memory, but recently it has started sporadically spiking up to 1300 MB of RAM. If I terminate the process, it restarts automatically with normal 80 MB (and Aero style immediately applies again, so it's not like restart kills visual effects).

comment “Network path not found” when trying to access network PC
It wasn't that simple. I had to fiddle with firewall tunings and unblock some protocols. Don't remeber the details, but it was fairly obvious once I found firewall settings.

comment Restoring MBR and GRUB bootloader
@Ramhound: Let me quote the wiki. Step 1: Boot the system from an installation boot medium - done. Step 2: Type linux rescue at the installation boot prompt to enter the rescue environment - what in the world is installation boot prompt??
