I' ve a recurrent problem with my mint 9 fluxbox. It looks like it appears randomly when using the wireless connection ( never happened with ethernet cable). The screen turn black, the mouse pointer is still displayed usualy, and the caps lock LED is blinking (I search the web for these symptoms, it would be a kernel panic or kernel crash). For example one time, it happened just after I was online and on was going to launch xchat with the menu :p , sometimes it doesn't happen, even after many and many hours.
It may not be an hardware problem, as win xp works fine, and i didn't have this problem with mint 8 gnome and opensuse 11.3 lxde.
I' m sorry. I' m not really confortable with linux yet.
Btw this distro works incredibly well, and out of the box .
Thanks for all.

Does the screen actually turn 'black' or a dark gray?
The dark-gray background is the base default background for Fluxbox; when the wallpaper-setter 'fails' it reverts to the default background.
If it is turning a dark-gray then, the problem is the Fluxbox wallpaper setter > fb-wpsetter
I have problems with using "Feh" to set the backgrounds in Fluxbox.
I installed Nitrogen, to handle the wallpaper/background for my Mint-9 Fluxbox.
Nitrogen is straight forward and easy to configure (if you have used Openbox you know what I mean)
Maybe or maybe not ... this might be part of the problem you are experiencing?
