Baby proofing

In Windows, I had an autoIT script that would disable the CD drive eject buttons when I logged on.

John was showing an interest in my endevours today and almost snapped one of my CD drive drawers off!

Luckily, there is a tool in Linux that does the job for me – cdctl.

By running the commands:
cdctl --lockdrive=1
cdctl --lockdrive=2

The drive door doesn’t eject, and leaves me feeling a bit safer.

As always, I’ve disabled the power button. This time through YaST, Power Management and then ACPI settings.

I still need to get around to disconnecting the reset button though.
