To be specific I can have the computer on during the day, even walk away for a few hours and I can come back, move the mouse and wake the monitor up. If I leave it overnight...both the mouse and keyboard are locked and won't accept input. I have to unplug the pc and reboot to get anywhere. No secret reboot codes or restarting X works. This is driving me crazy. Any idea's? I'm pretty much a Linux Noob. I'm running Mint 6, on an older Abit K7a motherboard. Old Nvidia TNT2 vidcard, which runs under the vesa driver. From searching it seems my problems are very similar to laptop issues. I'm thinking the HAL scripts are the culprit. But I don't even know how to turn that off or where to look if there are logs. Help please.
