comment Computer shuts down after some hours of sleeping while unplugged
@cesarsalgado, yes, the problem is that the ability to seamlessly convert from suspend to hibernation involves doing a hybrid suspend where the system writes the hibernation data and preserves the ram, up until the timer expires, then it just shuts down and relies on the hibernation data. Since Ubuntu doesn't do a hybrid suspend normally, the shutdown just loses your data.

@user2656801, how big is sda5? You might just need to use sudo pvresize on it to grow it to the full partition size, or you might need to resize the partition first. You can do this using parted.

@user2656801, sudo pvs will show how much unallocated space you have in the volume group or if you want to use it all you can specify "100%" for the size, but using it all in a single volume kind of defeats the purpose of using LVM.

comment How can I use an ISO of an audio CD?
You can't make an iso of an audio cd. You can make a raw image file plus a .cue sheet that describes the tracks. Do you have the .cue sheet?

comment Can't mount hardware RAID 1
FYI, you don't have hardware raid; you have a fakeraid. How did you try to mount it? You should be mounting a partition in the drive, not the drive as a whole.

comment HDD not recognized correctly
Looks like your disk is corrupt. You might try using testdisk to recover if you haven't got a backup you can restore.

comment can't find information on creating a 1TB partition
You didn't create any partition table at all; instead you formatted the entire disk as one 1 tb filesystem, so the premise of your question doesn't make sense.

comment USB storage device not recognized in file explorer but is seen by fdisk
It doesn't appear to be formatted. Use the disk utility to partition and format it.

comment Will UEFI boot with EFI partition + MBR partition table work (instead of GPT)?
Indeed, you may as well just use GPT as it is better all around. Most notably you don't have the annoying 4 primary partition limit.

comment How to extend the virtual memory in Linux?
You buy more ram. As an alternative, you can use lubuntu or xubuntu whose guis need less ram.

comment Set root to current drive in GRUB
@ZAB, there is no stage 1.5 ( or 1 or 2 ) in grub2; those are legacy grub things.

I had to modify these commands as the files are in ~/.steam, not ~/.local/share/Steam.

You will have to provide more information. The output of lsblk is a good start.
