When you open the Automatic Updates tab in My Computer Property sheet, or from Control Panel, all of the Automatic Updates configuration options may be grayed out. This happens due to any of the following reasons:
You're not logged on as Administrator (or equivalent)
Automatic Updates Policy is enabled
Automatic Updates (and Windows Update) access is blocked via Group Policy
To make the Automatic Updates options configurable by the user (only for stand-alone systems), remove the restrictions 2 & 3 above.
Click Start, Run and type REGEDIT.EXE
Navigate to this location:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Policies \ Microsoft \ Windows \ WindowsUpdate \ AU
In the right-pane, delete the two values AUOptions and NoAutoUpdate
Navigate to this location:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Policies \ WindowsUpdate
In the right-pane, delete the value DisableWindowsUpdateAccess
Using the Group Policy Editor - for Windows XP Professional
Click Start, Run and type gpedit.msc
Navigate to the following location:
=> Computer Configuration
==> Administrative Templates
===> Windows Components

In the right-pane, double-click Configure Automatic Updates and set it to Not Configured
Then, navigate to this location:

There seems to be a problem with recognizing the ati-card as a mobility-firegl-V5700; instead it is seen as a HD3650, which is slightly different, resulting in different drivers.
Bios upgrade to >1.18 fixes this; then also a new driver for the firegl is needed instead of the hd3650 driver...

link to bios-update
link to driver
explanation etc.

After kernel update on Suse 11.0, the kde 100%cpu hang happens again...
removed ksmserverrc to fix this.

On samwise with 11.1 , this didn't help;
removing kpowersaverc does seem to have fixed this.

"Yesterday I learnt about two new options for my xorg.conf :

        Option          "AllowEmptyInput" "off"
        Option          "AutoAddDevices" "off"

I must thank the X Strike Force guys from Debian for that knowledge. Yesterday I tried the latest Xorg packages (7.4) that are available for sid, and my keyboard and mouse stopped working. It seems that Xorg now relies more on what HAL tells it about the available input devices than on its own configuration (as explained here, thanks Ana for the link), and those two options together force X to continue using the input devices configuration from xorg.conf instead of using HAL.
I know the solution would be to configure HAL correctly, but that would take longer and yesterday I didn't have the time for that (I have a very custom mouse configuration for my trackball marble fx, that I guess it won't be easy to write in HAL)."

using HAL in X:
