Gnome's screensaver can switch users, leave messages, unlock with
fingerprint scanner, and as a bonus, doesn't look like its running on
an Atari system from 1983. C'mon, update the icon already.

Gnome's powermanager work for me. XFCE's doesn't. No idea why, or what
magic they are employing. More substantively, not sure that XFCe can
spin down hard drives.

Is this a threadjack, or is this now a desktop war thread?
