    Embarrasing Newbie Question(s)


    1. How do I turn off the log on/off sounds?
    2. There is some kind of screen saver running showing very nice pictures of the Far East. How do I turn it off?
    3. How do I set it so the screen turns off after a period of time on battery?

    Hi. To get accurate responses to your questions, you need to let us know which desktop environment you are using e.g. GNOME, KDE3, KDE4 etc.

    How do I turn off the log on/off sounds?

    On the taskbar there is a spanner/screwdriver(Configure your desktop), Click it

    Along where it says "Look and Feel" go to "Notifications"
    In the "Event source" drop down chose "KDE System Notifications"
    then un-check Login/Logout

    Then "Apply"

    How do I set it so the screen turns off after a period of time on battery?

    Laptop Power Control Center,
    Someone with a laptop will have to help there

    There is some kind of screen saver running showing very nice pictures of the Far East. How do I turn it off?

    Right click on desktop go to "Desktop setting"
    Self explanatory that one

    Thanks. It wasn't quite like you said, I had to go to the Menu>Tools>System Tools, but once I knew what I was looking for, I could find it.
    Anyway, in that same window under Computer Administration>Display are power saving settings, but there is no way to differentiate between AC power supply and battery power supply. So, if anybody can answer that...
