Given the problems, and how they recur, I'm considering that, and
going with KDE or something else besides the default Ubuntu. Trouble
is, my favorite pgms are from several desktops and that doesn't seem
to work well anymore. :-(

I still look enviously at my old 12.04 box that just keeps running
well with a similar set of pgms, and does things like phones, camera
and other chips better than 16.04. Sigh....

True - I did both on different updates.

I did not turn off the power completely - I assumed that would not
make a difference.
