    Thanks for this, helped me out no end. In case anyone needs to know, adding the -t argument to the ssh ***mand create a pseudo-terminal which enables you to run sudo ***mands if necessary.

  13. [ubuntu] Re: How do I stop the Power light blinking while in suspend

    I doubt you can stop it, it's almost certainly a hardware feature since all laptops I've seen that implement a suspend mode (irrespective of O/S) do something the same. The O/S isn't doing anything...

    According to a friend who is a radio engineer, Lion batteries actually last longer if kept (trickle-)charged, so you may not actually be helping your battery by not charging/fully discharging it.
