I did a clean install of Mint 13 64bit Cinnamon, but it is so unstable as it freezes couple times a day. So I removed cinnamon and installed gnome shell 3.4. At the beginning it appears to be more stable than cinnamon. But after a week's use (installed themes, eclipse, virtualbox, dropbox, that's all the software I installed addition to those come with mint), it now freezes couple times a day as well. When it freezes, no hot key is working, all I can do is turn off the power and reboot, that's really annoying. Now I have to use gnome fallback. Anybody know what could be wrong? I already tried to disable all shell extensions, but no big difference. It still freezes randomly. My laptop is Thinkpad x230, it comes with intel graphic card. Thanks.
