divine will use ARP requests to look for hosts that are always up in the networks that you frequently use your laptop in and then set the IP configuration including /etc/resolv.conf and write proxy settings in /etc/proxy. A perl script to edit your netscape 4 preferences is included. You can also run a custom script for each network to edit /etc/printcap or /etc/issue or whatever you feel like. The ARP method is much quicker than the "ping" method that other solutions use.

Powertweak-Linux is a tool to tune your system to its optimal performance settings. It started life as the replacement for the now obsolete kernel option 'tune PCI bridges', and has been extended to provide more features and support more chipsets. It can also tune network/filesystem performance using /proc/sys entries, disk elevator settings, and x86 CPU registers (needs 2.2.18 or 2.4.0test kernel), CDROM speeds, hdparm type features, and Sony VAIO backlight. It has both a GTK GUI and a text-based lister.

Suspend2 allows you to hibernate your machine without needing APM, BIOS, or ACPI support. It creates an image that is saved in your active swap partitions, swap files, ordinary files or (soon) across a network. At the next system boot, the kernel detects the saved image, restores the memory from it and then it continues to run as if you'd never powered down.

BusyBox combines tiny versions of many common UNIX utilities into a single small executable. It provides minimalist replacements for most of the utilities you usually find in GNU fileutils, shellutils, etc. The utilities in BusyBox generally have fewer options than their full-featured GNU cousins; however, the options that are included provide the expected functionality and behave very much like their GNU counterparts. BusyBox provides a fairly complete POSIX environment for any small or embedded system.
