Extra Openbox Menu Items

Some items to add to the Openbox menu:

Here is an entry for Firefox 4 beta:

<item label="firefox"><action name="Execute"><execute>/opt/firefox4/bin/firefox</execute></action></item>

Here is an entry to Suspend the machine to RAM. I cannot get this actual command to run, so I have to pop the command in a script and then run the script. There has to be a better way of doing this.

<item label="Suspend to RAM"><action name="Execute"><command>~/</command></action></item>

cat > ~/ << "EOF"
echo mem > /sys/power/state

The next two items would be good in the system section - Powertop for useful battery information, and top for system process information.

<item label="Powertop"><action name="Execute"><command>xterm -e /usr/bin/powertop</command></action></item>

<item label="Top"><action name="Execute"><command>xterm -e /usr/bin/top -i</command></action></item>
