I am a relative noob to linux and need some advice. First, how can I prevent certain programs from auto starting when KDE starts? I cannot find the "session manager" anywhere. I am able to kill them using the kill command, but would like to prevent them from starting at startup. Secondly, and this is kinda weird; but my system will freeze up after about 1 to 2 hours of inactivity! I have all power saving options turned off and am booting with the noapic and nolapic options in the grub.conf file.
Sometimes, while in the middle of something, the system will even kick me out of the session and take me to the login screen! I cannot recreate this error at will as it is completely random.
Thanks for your help in advance.
Let me know if there is any other info you need (and how to get it for you, lol)
