Adam, Thanks for the quick answer, much appreciated. I may get grumpy on this one, hopefully no-one takes offence.

GNOME can certainly count in the inappropriate for the intended use category. In any event this should be an easily opt out of. > It should be configurable in the Power panel of the control center. Do you know if there is there a way of setting it without logging in to the console device? GNOME will hopefully not then reset a value it has no right to set without consent. My set up has a server, one workstation/server, and three laptops all up and working. I am only logged into one. Now the workstation/server (which should never stop as it has a server role) and two laptops spontaneously suspend, which f#### everything up. :-( I guess I am going to have a problem with my server which actually has GNOME installed for various reasons. -- Russel. =========================================== Dr Russel Winder t: +44 20 7585 2200 41 Buckmaster Road m: +44 7770 465 077 London SW11 1EN, UK w: www.russel.org.uk
