The title pretty much says it. I recently put dual-boot Ubuntu on my old laptop to see what it was like, and I'm very pleased. Much faster for booting and most normal computing activities. Still some quirks though.

This one isn't so bad, because neither sleep nor hibernate ever really worked on my computer under XP. Hibernate doesn't seem to work (yet) with Ubuntu either, but sleep does, with the exception mentioned above. When I come back from sleep, everything seems to work well, except when I play a video, the display window for the video application (like mplayer) shows a blue screen, even though the video is playing, and I can hear the sound.

I have an HP5430 with a Trident something video card.

Ring any bells with anyone?
