In reply to: OpenOffice comes with a "pagein" utility.

Subjectively, for me, running that shell function seems to get rid of the lag on alt-tab to Firefox, Gimp, or OpenOffice first thing in the morning.
What would be better, for a desktop system, would be a "goodnight" script that would run housekeeping tasks such as updatedb and logrotate, then page back in whatever the user had been working on, then suspend.
