Various Problems

I faced many obstacles getting this DPF to work. And there were two issues that I couldn't properly handle. The first was a display-timeout problem that turned off the screen after 10 minutes. I changed the BIOS and looked for a software solution, but nothing worked. In the end, I used a hair clip to just hold down a key and trick the laptop into believing that a user was present.

The second problem was trying to get rid of the little X cursor on the screen. My solution was to move it off into a corner using Shift+Ctrl+up arrow. This worked, although it's annoying for the end user. However, as it states on the initial boot screen, "...you're welcome to apply for a full refund of the money you paid me for it :-)."
