With screen I'm now happy, to start it at the beginning,
and with 'C-a D D' (pow_detach) is a Detach and logout,
and with screen -r a attach after relogin possible.

- Wouldn't it be nice to add the hint 'screen' to your man pages?

- So 'Strg-z' is a feature of the kernel?
- Would you bash-people think it would make sence to ask the kernel-team
  about 'Strg-z & bg' @once? Or is the screen solution perfect engough
  for all user and all kind of devices?

Wish you all the best,
