Appreciate the attention . . . I have noticed something about "freedesktop
xxxxxx" when restarting the iBook out of 14 U-MATE . . . but, from the
desktop GUI.  So, it looks like what you are showing me above are the
commands for shutdown, suspend, restart??  The only thing that isn't there
is "sudo"??? so if I want to "suspend" I would run "sudo
dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest=org.freedesktop.UPower
/org/freedesktop/UPower org.freedesktop.UPower.Suspend"  ????   And so
these commands would just be "stored" in a text file to be copy/pasted into
the Terminal??

I'll again have to check into JWM, I think I checked it out awhile back,
but I may be moving U-MATE 14 to my Sawtooth, and then I could play a bit
with the iBook . . . but, I do enjoy the GNOME "Floating Feet" screensaver
that comes with MATE . . . .
