comment How to connect with Mobile Broadband using a Verizon LG USB
Have you tried waiting for like 1 or 2 minutes after pluging-in the broadband adapter, to see if the connection shows up in the network manager? I also have a USB Broadband adapter (not Verizon nor LG) and sometimes it takes a lot to show up.

comment Increase screen idle dim timeout
I'm using 12.04, all updates installed, and there's no setting to set the screen dim timeout in "Brightness and lock". The only "timeout" option on the "Brightness and lock" settings menu is to turn the screen off, which is not the same thing as dimming its brightness.

comment Is it possible to turn the video card off in a laptop to use it as a headless server?
Have you tried using bbswitch from the Bumblebee-Project? Use it with caution, I don't know if it can damage the system. github.com/Bumblebee-Project/bbswitch#readme

@MariusHofert You haven't missed out the last quotation marks right? If you try the second command (sh -c "...") in a console, does it work?

@MariusHofert I've updated the answer with how to use the commands from a keyboard shurtcut. See if it works as you need. (I've tested in Ubuntu 12.04 and it worked).
