Seriously, the game guides you with a nice tutorial, in the beggining until it says you go meditate.. now i cant find that button, there is no tutorial how to meditate, there is no button( i pressed it all) and there is no bed in that "tutoria" zone, where im near leo dead body..

Whats up? :D
Meditate in front of fires (fireplace, campfire).
There are two ways to meditate:

1) Find a fireplace, and click on it. Annoyingly, not all fireplaces allow this.... but the one on the ground floor of Kaer Morhen SHOULD let you do it. I remember it being finicky. You will sometimes have to light the fireplace. Clicking on a fireplace will automatically light it if you have a flint in your inventory. Later in the game you can use your Igni sign to light fireplaces too.

2) In conversation with certain people, you can sometimes select the "I'll rest and prepare" button which will let you meditate. This is usually how you meditate when you are in someone else's house, for example, but they will let you rest there. I think you can do this in Kaer Morhen by talking to Vesimir.

Strangely, Geralt never uses beds to meditate, he just sits near fires.

EDIT:

You can also meditate later in the game by getting a room at an inn. I actually never tried this because usually there are fireplaces around that let you do it for free.

how to wait? ive got a mission where i suppose to come back later, and now i have to run to the campfire just so i can pass a couple of hours?
Go do a different mission in the meantime, or play dice, or find a prostitute. There are plenty of other things you can do to pass the time in this game, other than just meditating.

You can advance "come back later" stages by leaving the area and returning, even if the NPC said "come back tomorrow". Cogadh had it right: go to the inn and beat somebody up, or cheat at dice, or take out your impatience on some drowners.

im still playing in the beggining of the game, and im new to this game.
Imagine: its night, i have no potions left, and im on low health.. and those dogs appear, so i have to stay in one spot so i dont die(leaving the pc alone, meanwhile findiing real life prostitute or playing dice? :D )

P.S. i got in another trouble, i bought few books aboutingredients, and monsters and i have a ton of ingredients, but i cant make any potion.. Should i go buy empty bottles somewhere or what? (really embarrasing since the game didnt told me about it)

Oh, OK, you're in Act I. (We meant "find a hooker" or "play dice" in the game.) The dogs come out only at night, so if you are in trouble, get to the Inn, or the Reverend's house, or Abigail's house, or a campfire, and meditate there until dawn. Especially handy campfires are the Royal Huntsman's camp west of the inn, an untended campfire just north of Odo's house, and an untended campfire north of Abigail's house.

To make potions, you need strong alcohol. Suitable kinds will include the words "potion base" or "high-quality potion base" in their descriptions. You can buy them (in Act I, from Vesna Hood when she's at work) or find them (in Act I, check containers in houses).

very thanks cjrgreen , that was frustrating to know i need strong alcohol with all the beer, wine around in my pockets.. :D now all is fine and im ready to get involved in this game..
Yup, strong alcohol.... solving my problems since 1983!
Don't get rid of the non-potion-making booze just yet. You'll be able to use it in drinking games with various individuals who will give you information or valuable items if you outdrink them.

Minor potential spoiler ahead:

(during Act I, just make sure you don't drink with the Drunkard in the village tavern, due to a bug the EE I had didn't fix; all the others are a-OK)
nice tip chiperiu :)

I had no problem drinking with him, using my disc copy of the Enhanced Edition. Maybe just save before you try it just in case.
Oh, one can drink with him, of course. However, (minor spoiler ahead) there will be another drunkard in a future Act who should have given me something and doesn't if I'd previously played the drinking game with his Act I fellow.

It's true in any copy, though; Chiperiu does not have an unusual bugged copy. You can only drink one or the other under the table for the reward.

The Act I drunkard gives the more useful reward.
