Re: Dual Boot and Multiple Drives

A good way to install Linux in a multi-boot scenario is to unplug your Windows drive and all other drives before you install Linux. That way you do not have to see a Grub menu at all. But your Linux system will still be able to communicate with the other drives after you plug them back in.

Re: Are You Killing Your SSD with Dual Boot ?

To the OP, You might have some mis-conceptions about SSDs. I have been using the same SSD for a dual boot since 2014, that seems like plenty of longevity to me. Most of my SSDs I bought between 2014 and 2016 and I have never had any kind of failure with an SSD. Every SSD that I have ever installed s...

Re: [SOLVED] Seeing hard drive contents

I am just a VERY casual Linux user, so I might not correctly understand the OP's confusion. I am using Linux Mint Cinnamon and I have my desktop completely clean with no icons at all. Because of that I just have one file icon on my system tray that I use to access my entire file system. When I click...

I wish that Linux Mint would automatically put the computer to sleep like other Linux distros. It hasn't worked since Linux Mint 17.x.
Maybe this can help:

For Xfce left click the power managemen/battery icon on the panel and select power manager settings.

Re: Put Display to Sleep after specified inactivity

What I would like is for my machine to go to sleep. I have a 650 watt PSU and 5 fans, I would like this machine to go to sleep automatically after a specified period of time. Linux mint does not seem to offer that function but other Linux distros do it very easily.

With brasero, you can make an image of the cd on your hdd (or other cd). To me that is often the easiest way.

And then type in all of the metadata by hand? That does not seem easy at all!!!!
