    Linux is Not Windows

    Take it with a bit of humor :-)

    The reverse is also true: for me it is difficult to go back to windows when I need to.

    It may have changed, the feature sticking on.

    I remember reading that page some time ago. It's a good explanation and also well written And yes it's probably been changed, since I never heard of an error causing a setting to stick in a program when the feature to store it doesn't exist.

    hmmmmm....actually i am running 11.4 so maybe they "fixed it" to once
    enabled it stays enabled...

    but, you say you "restarted the computer several times" and i said
    "every time you open YaST" [with 'open' having the meaning of
    'executing' or 'starting' yast from a not-running state]..

    so, if you have enabled the cleanup option, and without shutting down
    Software Management, clicked through to any of hibernate, sleep or
    complete power down shutdown and then bring it back to life/reboot and
    click on your *still* running exactly like it was when you commanded
    sleep/off then you have not yet done what i did:

    - close software management
    - open software management..

    as said: maybe they fixed it, but maybe not.

    Pretty certain it's always a new instance. I closed and reopened the Install Manager several times, and restarted the computer while it was closed. When I opened it again I was asked for root password, which is only requested once at each login IIRC. I don't use Sleep or Hibernate either. So I'm sure it sticks.

    I think the remember root password (if checked) is only good for 5-10 min not forever after entering the password for a given session.

    Ah, that's why it DOES ask me again sometimes during the same login. But I didn't know when and why and if there are other triggers. It's safest that way so I approve.

    kdesudo has an option to remember for some short period of time. So say you start Yast enter password and box is checked if you quit Yast and then restart it you will not be asked for the password again. But wait 15 min and you will asked
