Its hard to tell because each version of Linux has its on special files that it can download. Look in all of your applications and see if you find a program called Synaptic Package. All you have to do is click on it and it goes to the repository and will update all of the packages and its dependent packages automatically. Not all versions have Synaptic, some just say Software manager, but its the same thing. So if you loaded Skype off of the Internet then you probably don't have all the files as Linux does not work like Windows. You can look for the Terminal window to open and type sudo apt-get install Skype see if that works, but again, if the program did not come from the specific repository then it may not update. If you want to remove it then you can either find it in your file manager program (again in applications) and delete it. Or you can try sudo apt-get remove Skype. Third option is to right-click on it and see what options you get if one says cut or delete then you know what to do. The sudo options will ask you for a password which you should have, its the root password. Last solution is to reload and start over, I've done that more than once :)..Well hope this helps, if you have any questions let me know.

Your settings in power mode have changed. Open up display and go to the screen saver tab (win 7) you will see the power savings option at the bottom. Go into that and change what the buttons do. You will have 3 situations to change. What happens when i close the lid, power button and sleep mode. Chances are you gave everything set to do nothing
You may accidentally have turned NumLk on which causes the keys on the right part of the keyboard to act as a keypad for entering numbers. A little padlock with the number 1 in its middle is the indicator for NumLk and it will be lit or a LED bar underneath it will be lit when NumLk is on. On the Acer Aspire One 8.9" screen model ZG5, the NumLk is toggled on/off by holding down Fn and pressing the F11 key. Also, when NumLk is on, pressing U I O gets 4 5 6 and J K L M gets 1 2 3 0. The reason for embedding the numeric keypad within the usual character keys eliminates having a separate set of keys for the keypad function resulting in a more compact keyboard that better fits with notebook computers such as the netbooks which have smaller screen sizes.
The Aspire One systems labeled with the modelZG5 are actually an Aspire One AOA110 or an Aspire One AOA150. Any information will be listed under AOA110 and AOA150, rather than ZG5.
The supportmodel number is located on the bottom of the netbook on a white label above the serial number. Alternatively, the support modelnumber will be located in the BIOS which can be entered by pressing the F2 key when turning the netbook on. Once in the BIOS it will be under the Information tab to the right of Product Name
