OP: If you got rid of the DE (window manager if you will) I don't think you'd be seeing much at all since it's the GUI environment if I understand correctly. Glad to see you got the panel thing though back under control. I remember when I first tried out Ubuntu and somehow had both panels linked (don't ask, me and default Ubuntu are not on talking terms). Went to the second and poof, both were gone. Freaked me out.
I see. I guess I just broke my panel? lol.

Anyways, I have a newish problem and a random question.

When I close the laptop or it just goes to sleep, it will not turn back on. I have to hold the power button and restart it. What's up with that?

Also, I really like the background I'm using, and I want it for my main computer. Where can I find the stock Ubuntu backgrounds?

All of the *buntus are bloated. That's why they just work. They have it set up to install just about everything most users would need. GNOME has put on more weight recently. I can usually run firefox, thunderbird, compiz and glx dock just around a gig.

There are some issues with sleep mode. I never really investigated it because I don't use sleep mode. On my desktop, I just lock my screen and turn off the monitor.

OP: Can you try Kubuntu or are you a Gnome only person? I ask because again, I had no problem with sleep in Kubuntu. Just make sure you're going for sleep and not hibernate as that might be a whole different issue dealing with swap from what I've heard (never used it so don't site me as source on it).

TFB: I ran Skype, Kopete, SMplayer, 5 tabs of Chromium, and Amarok for a grand total of 880MB and that was the most post install I usually used. If that's bloated I'm scared to see just how stingy linux can get on RAM usage. I'm worried I'll hardly be using the new desktop I'm building since I spend most of my time in Linux.

Like mentioned above check to see if its hibernating or not. If you don't have a swap partition setup then that could be your problem.

Some people say you don't need a swap but its recommended with good reasoning
Good Luck

I'll try Kubuntu later. I have no preferences. Is Kubuntu any lighter on resources than Ubuntu is? This laptop has 512MB of memory, 1.46GHz single core processor. lol.

Hell, I have Ubuntu running on 2 desktops smoothly with a crappy CPU and 512MB of RAM too. Thank god for Linux they would still be in my closet without it

Sarcasm? I am confused at your post.

Perhaps I'm just spoiled by the speed of my computer (comparatively).

No no, lol. Just letting you know I feel your pain on it when I was installing it on those two pc's. But hey, they run much better than they would with WIndow$

But about your sleep problem, do you have a swap?

A memory swap? Unless it sets it up by default, no.

Seriously. Since my recent experiences with Linux, I've been very... turned off by Windows. I mean, come on. Just boot times alone are epic. This laptop (which has an incredibly slow HDD (is there an HD Tune equivalent program for Linux?)) starts up about 10 seconds faster than my sig rig.
