Re: better version for this old Dell?
Well, this time it booted right to the login screen.
All options were available on the logout screen.
It shut down no problem.
I confess I didn't know about Alt+PrintScreen+REISUB. I knew there must be a safer way, but I had run out of library computer time and needed to get home. I'm going to keep a notebook with the laptop of all these codes!
I will definitely take a loot at the link, Dennis N. Will also take a look at Lubuntu. Thanks so much for all your help.
