	Thanks. for the info... I'll drop the Xubuntu setup on the laptop, and 
try out the xfwm4. BTW, any downsides to using xfwm4 instead of metacity?
	And I'll try the Brightside app that Alexandre mentioned also.

	Anybody have any thoughts as to which would be the better way to do 
this? (Brightside vs. xfwm4)

	I'll let you know how it works out for me...
