I have Mint 10 installed on a Lenovo W520 and it was working fine for quite a while (6 months?) but now, it locks up 2-6 times a day. I haven't been able to find a pattern to it. Sometimes it locks up and I have to physically turn off the laptop. Other times, I leave the computer and when I come back it's just totally off.
When I boot up, I connect to my work's VPN, and run Firefox, Thunderbird, Pidgin, Dropbox, Parcellite, and Pithos. Many times I have Eclipse running also. I stopped running Pithos in case that was it and it still locks up. It has locked up without Eclipse running. So, I don't think it's Pithos or Eclipse. I just upgraded FIrefox today in case FF had something to do with it (no lockups in the last hour now).
Is there some overall system log I can look at after a lockup to maybe get an idea of what is going on when it locks up?
UPDATE: I don't think it's Eclipse, Firefox, Pithos, Pidgin, or Thunerbird. It has locked up without each of those running.
