    i have been saving some emails on this list that talk about
compiling a custom kernel, but 1) i have never done that 2) i am not
sure if that is something i can do for 8.04 Hardy, or if it only works
for newer releases?  do i have to upgrade to 9.04 to build a new kernel
with the latest kernel sources?

    agreed, sometimes it is quicker to start/stop.  however, session
saving never seems to work well, and re-setting window positions/opening
apps/etc. takes more time (and interaction) than waiting for hibernation
to thaw, during which i can tune my guitar ;)

thanks for the help,
