Yes, a tap on the screen will wake it up; the question is if LinuxICE already handles this, and how =)
Stopping the screen from blanking is easy:
xset s off
And you're done :)
Someone solved #1, so as I promised, here is a fix for #2.
tune2fs is an utility that you can use to change both the number of bootups between filesystem checks, and the number of days/weeks/months between filesystem checks.
For example to have the filesystem checked once every 60 bootups use
$sudo tune2fs -c 60
To have the filesystem check run periodically, say once a week, use
$sudo tune2fs -i 1w
changing the “w” to “d” or “m” will have the check run once daily and once monthly – you get the idea.
As always, you can read
for more detailed information and examples.
To disable filesystem integrity check for the next bootup, create a file called /fastboot.
This will disable filesystem check only once.
On the contrary to force a filesystem check the next time you bootup, create a file called /forcefsck by doing
$sudo touch forcefsck
