comment How to get system to shutdown when Xorg is quit?
I think you will find varying avenues based on how the system is shutdown. If a window-manager application is doing it, there will be fewer places to look for a script that can be tuned. If procs are being shutdown by a hot-key or even command line, different options available.

comment Debian systems seems to recognize speakers but not the headphones for Lenovo laptops
I would try an alternate pair of headphones, just to make sures the current ones weren't faulting on some device-attached check.

comment How to Reset Forgotten Root Password in Fedora 19 from GRUB
I just encountered an issue with FC19 root password reset. As OP mentions, single-user mode asks for the root password. Further issue - using the 'init=/bin/sh', 'mount -o remount,rw /', 'passwd' method - It not only failed to update the root password properly, but also broke something (I think in policykit) which kept the windowmanager from fully loading on subsequent reboots. Totally baffled about how to fix it now without a reinstall.

comment Is it possible to retrieve the active window process/title in Gnome?
Something as in, `xwininfo -root -children | grep -oEi 'Window id: (?[0-9a-zA-Z]+) | grep -oEi '(?0-9a-zA-Z)' -- edit: my finger slipped, my regex for window id was bad. check this other site for varying reference: davygoat.com/software/rizzle/How_it_works.html
