After I switched of "Use overlay scroll bars", bars are visible all the time, however the color of a bar is the same as it's background
This can be related to the theme. Try to change the theme.

Re: Speed up mint

You can get slightly better system responsiveness with tweaks as DAMIEN1307 suggested, but if you wish to use your machine for another few years, upgrade to the SSD disk. Even if your system has only a SATA3 interface, this will speed up your system considerably. You can get a 128 GB SSD for less th...

Re: Sleep,hibernate or shut down?

@chowchow
HDDs for client computers are not designed for operation in 24/7 mode. For that operation mode HDDs for NAS devices and servers are appropriate. By the way, are you sure that HDDs do not spin-down when computers enter suspend mode or hibernation?

Re: Sleep,hibernate or shut down?

We, our family, shutdown our computers every day. Normally we shut them down even before we go away for a few hours. All computers have SSDs and in 15 seconds they are ready for use with a fresh and clean operating system.

My BIOS is quite simple and offers no control over this. In fact, it's so simple I cannot even disable UEFI and it's not even obvious on how to disable Secure Boot.
Try to set supervisor password in UEFI. Maybe then you will have more options available.

Re: Can Mint 20 control the battery charging threshold?

@BrunoMiranda I have the same desire as you. I did not find a solution for this future under Linux. As far as I know, tlp supports battery charge threshold only for ThinkPads, https://linrunner.de/tlp/faq/battery.html. A few months ago I opened a thread on this forum about this problem, https://foru...
