Re: How to add Universal Time to panel.

I get a popup with UTC along with other zones when hovering over the local time panel?

You can look for it by opening the File Manager and enabling Hidden files. The images may be in ~/.local/share/wallpapers/?

Hope that helps.

Re: Wifi Strangeness

No, it's not. When you shut down a computer, everything (including all modules) is being unloaded automatically.
Usually! unless maybe the bios still sends power to the usb ports.
