comment How do you know when to use SHIFT+INSERT vs CTRL-V vs right-click-paste to paste?
The question appears to me about the two types of clipboards: PRIMARY (usually Ctrl-C/V/X) and CLIPBOARD (mouse selection, insertion with Shift-Ins), and not having to use Shift additionally in a terminal for the PRIMARY clipboard's shortcuts (or LibreOffice's special paste).

comment Logout/Shutdown taking very long, how to find the problem?
Are you using Squid (a HTTP proxy) by any chance? This might add 30 seconds (shutdown lifetime, can be configured to be 0).

comment How do I use pm-suspend-hybrid by default instead of pm-suspend?
You are right about hybrid-suspend. I have recently changed my snippet myself. You can get (quite) the same result by using METHOD=hibernate and HIBERNATE_MODE=suspend. I am setting HIBERNATE_MODE=platform at the top of the file, instead of saving and restoring the previous version (what the patch does). I will update my answer above.

Would be worth a bug report probably and/or testing if it works in 12.10+.

comment Prevent windows from stealing focus
@Joel how did you setup it? What Focus Prevention Level are you using and how did you configure the "Focus Prevention Windows" matching rules?
