Aleutia is a small PC manufacturer based in UK. They build mainly low power computers. As I was searching a fanless nettop, I chose the Aleutia T1 Fanless Eco PC. It's a nettop which can be put on a vertical desk stand or at the rear of a VESA monitor.
Grub is a boot loader used by Ubuntu. When a multi-boot is configurated, Grub waits 10 seconds before launching the default OS.
To change the timeout, edit with sudo rights etc/default/grub and change the entry GRUB_TIMEOUT=XX (-1 will display the menu untill the user chooses a selection); then run sudo update-grub in the console.
In Ubuntu, when you click on the logout menu, a confirmation is required during 60 seconds. To disable it:
Open a terminal and launch gconf-editor, then change the following values:
check apps | indicator-session | suppress_logout_restart_shutdown
uncheck apps | gnome-session | options | logout_prompt
