  1. Laptop stops when closing the cover

    I am closing in idle state, it does not overheat. Also it does not stop if the cover is opened and when the cover is closed but there is an external monitor.
  2. I set up the computer should do no action when the cover is closed, in power options. Yet, if to close the cover and wait a few minutes, the laptop stops: the screen is highlited but black, and the machine is not responsive on any action, keyboard and mouse. Only hard power off resumes operation (with damage to the file system). What can I do so to fix this behavior?
  3. When double-clicking an image file, it does not open instantly. If to double-click it the second time, it opens in two instances. This does not depend on the associated viewer (happens with both the default Windows viewer and with MS Photo Editor). A similar, maybe related issue: when double-clickin a torrent file, the torrent downloader opens but without that file, to activate the file one has to double-click it again.

    Did you try to refresh resource cache?
  6. This uptate caused my Win8.1 running on AMD A6-4400M to freeze when browsing Internet and watching videos. I uninstalled the update, the problems gone. But Microsoft still offers the monthly rollup that contains the update. Why they did not revoke it from my system? Granted, it was not rendered unbootable, but the issues are heavy. And if they do not fix it, I will be unable to install any updates any more.
  7. It will work with it enabled. If you want DWM off, you also can do it and Classic theme can work both ways.
  8. If you disable DWN you have tearing.
  9. There is no tearing of corruption on Win 8. Unless you specifically disable DWM or you use Win 7.
  10. What about adding the Virtual Desktop Manager? It is designed for WinXP, but maybe can work on Win2000 as well. go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=211482
  11. You can get rid of charms by renaming two dlls.
  12. Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    AFAIK, there is a way to entirely remove the "webby" part of the UI from Win2k/xp. There was a guide on the Internet. The UI (Explorer) would be exactly as on WinNT.
  13. Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    There are people who still run Win2k. I do not know why one would want to run WinNT if running Win2k is possible.

    Your distro does not allow to install several desktops?

    Technically, KDE3 is available for latest openSUSE release, and MAYBE will be available for a few next ones. I do not use Linux any more. Yes, under Gates the doctine was mostly of not removing any features and functions. Only adding newer ones as an option. Windows XP was the first Windows version that featured removal or deprecation of some functions. But that was not a major thing. But on Linux things are much worse. On Windows they do not as often as on Linux throw away toolkits. Now Nadella strives to push his Metro and called the Win32 apps "legacy" but I doubt he will succeed in killing Win32 (or that would be instant death of Microsoft). Previously they also dropped Win16 (while it is still supported on some Windows versions). But on Linux they replace toolkits every 3-4 years, with all software written in those toolkits scrapped as well, if not rewritten by the authors. That's why, Windows 10 is Linuxization of Windows - various toolkits, various styles in every application, constant beta with releases every half a year which do not fix bugs. Hardware that stops working after update and you always wait for a next update with a fix. Something like Ubuntu (the worst Linux distro).
