as for me, since i hibernate most of the time, and my sisters dont
even use it, entering linux by mistake can ruin my work. so i set kdm
to autologin my user, and set a password on the linux entires of grub.
in other words, i advanced the asking for a password a bit earlier.
but as for suspend to RAM, this solution is not useful.
