    Default Missing desktop switch and autosuspend in 11.2

    My update from 11.1 to 11.2 is good but I can't find any way of setting a timed autosuspend to disk. It used to be in kpowersave but that doesn't seem to be available. Is it simply a case of waiting for an 11.2 version to appear? Would the 11.1 version still work?

    The other thing is that the task bar icon for switching desktops is missing and despite a lot of searching I can't see how to get it back. Any help would be appreciated.

    Ooops, yes you're right - the power management thing works fine. I thought it referred to just switching off the screen - must try harder. Thanks for that.
    That just leaves the desktop switching thing.

    Anna - the desktop pager seems to have been changed to a widget called "pager". I was able to drag it from the list of widgets to the task bar. I'm afraid I don't know what the keyboard method is.

    These are the settings.
    Are you saying you no longer have this functionality?
    I'm not sure where the setting is.
    Hang on. I'll look around.

    I too have a problem with the Pager Widget.

    With openSUSE 11.1, I can detach the Pager, KPager, and place it anywhere on the desktop. Then, with the KPager showing icons corresponding to the applications open on each desktop, I can switch instantly to the desktop I require by simply clicking on that pager window.
    Also I can slide applications from desktop to desktop via the pager.

    I can't find a way to set this up with 11.2, is it possible?

    TIA

    Ross
