    I'm actually creating a new image and reading the scripts as it works.
    #1, i'm not sure. It's an X11 setting I think. usually a tap on the sreen wakes it up. at least for me it does. LinuxICE doesn't have gnome-power-manager, so it doesn't put the monitor to sleep/turn it off.

    Yes, a tap on the screen will wake it up; the question is if LinuxICE already handles this, and how =)

    probably gnome-power-manager? I'm not doing anything special.

    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.

    From...

    http://embraceubuntu.com/2005/10/12/...eck-at-bootup/

    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
    $man tune2fs
    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
