- BootUp-Manager: I disabled "Common files for NVIDIA video cards" (ATI on my laptop) and "Bluetooth services". Something to investigate a little more though.
- Login Window: Changed the Theme to "Human" and disabled the login screen sound
- Network: Already manually configured my IP
- Time and Date: I like to keep my OS clock using a NTP server (ntp02.oal.ul.pt)
