comment Logout/Shutdown taking very long, how to find the problem?
Try "tail -F" with ~/.xsession-errors and/or look at ~/.xsession-errors.old after reboot. There might be some indication in there. Also, if you are seeing the splash while it is waiting (the Ubuntu logo and the dots), then remove "quiet" and "splash" from the kernel boot arguments to have more information while it is hanging. This might be related to mounted network shares.

comment Hibernate missing from power menu and when I press laptop power button
Note: it is possible to use the advanced installer and setup something like cryptsetup on a partition, LVM on top and then e.g. root, home and swap as logical volumes. This allows for hibernate to work and everything is encrypted.

comment mplayer can't play audio from cron while ncmpcpp is playing simultaneously
It does not help for sound though.. the error from cron for e.g. ogg123 is: ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1018:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave ERROR: Cannot open device alsa.

comment How do I set focus follows mouse?
There should be a delay after which the focus would change, defaulting to e.g. 200ms - this would allow to quickly move across other windows to reach the UMB for example.
