This will set their power permissions similar to Power Users and allow limited users to adjust their own Power Options.
Microsoft did not implement Driver Signature Enforcement to annoy you. They did is to protect you from installing malicious software. This makes it a little more difficult for Rootkits to be installed on your PC. Be sure you know what you are installing!
The following steps will only last until you reboot your PC.
Open Settings by clicking on your Start Screen or hitting the Windows key on your keyboard. Hover your mouse at the bottom right of the start screen until the sidebar appears. Click Settings.

The Kernel version is broken down into three parts:
The Current Linux Kernel versions (June 2014) are:
3.14.5 (Stable – Maintained by Greg Kroah-Hartman)
3.15-rc8 (Development – Linus Torvalds)
The first number(3) is the major revision to the Linux Kernel. The second number(14) shows the minor revision. Development Kernels are odd and production kernels are even. Development kernels are not fully tested and can be unstable. Once a development Kernel is thoroughly tested and deemed stable is will be given an even number x.1.x → x.2.x or x.3.x → x.4.x
Since the Linux Kernel is constantly being improved and revised a revision number(5) is added when smaller changes are made.
How to tell which Linux Kernel you are running?
From your Linux Terminal type:
rpm -q kernel (If you arte running Red Hat package manager)
