You can remove the following from onboot.lst

Xvesa - not needed if you are using Xorg-7.7
wl-modules-4.19.10-tinycore.tcz - recursive dep of wifi
iw - not needed if you are using wifi
ndiswrapper - you are using wireless-rtl8822be-4.19.10-tinycore
firmware* - the one you need, firmware-rtlwifi, is a dep of wireless-rtl8822be-4.19.10-tinycore
tc-install-GUI - would be be better in ondemand.list
ezremaster - would be be better in ondemand.list

special key recognition is a function of the bios, manufacturers kernel driver and Xorg-7.7, not xbindkeys - once Xorg has recognised the special keystroke (cf "xev -event keyboard"), xbindkeys does something with the signal that the key has been pressed.

In my case, I'd do
Code: [Select]
sudo umount /dev/sdx
eject /dev/sdx
before unplugging my USB.

Later on, I'd reinsert my USB and mount it for the backup.

Usually, by doing so, the USB device letter (/dev/sdx) would be preserved.
