Yup. Just disabled the screen saver. Works wonders now :)

I _try_ to save power whenever possible. Lower power bills makes
me a happier person :)
Linux-ish question: Is any version of linux "better" (ie. faster)
for running rc5? I've got a p-90 sitting around w/ win95 on
it, doing nothing. In my never-ending quest for learning more and
more about unix, I'm debating throwing linux on it as well.
Since this machine will do nothing but sit and churn numbers,
I might as well optimize it as much as I can.
(send opinions to me if you want to spare the list from IMHOs...)
