Hello,

I am adding a second computer to my desktop as my Vista workstation has done a stellar job of turning an AMD Phenom Quad and 8GB of ram into a slow machine that takes 10 minutes to log in.

My install is going swimmingly, with one exception...

I am in the habit of pressing the Windows Key and M on my Keyboard to minimize all Windows and show my desktop. When I do this on my Ubuntu machine it freaks out the colors on my screen and there is no way to undo it unless I log out or reboot. I woudl like to figure out how to either turn this off, or reconfigure it to replicate the windows feature.

Thx!

I presume you didn't try pressing Windows+M again? :p
