There are not many GNU/Linux users who are quite strict about making
their machines run an 100% free software. So volume of posts is quite
low in this and other relevant mailing lists.

I do not know what is A+ course and have never seen the disk utility.
I have not used any desktop from several years now. I  simply use a
Window Manager (StumpWM), a file manager (midnight-commander) and
X-terminal (xfce4-terminal).  So I con  not help you with GUI
solutions. You can check the swap partition using two commnds:
"free -h" and "swapon s"

Try searching on google several times before you post and wait for the
answers. It will save you a lot of time and frustration. There is
frustrationin in searching and looking for an answer to your questions
on Google and you will only postpone the frustration by posting and
waiting for answers. Frustration will be there both ways hence  one
better solve problems faster :)
