It is likely an issue with some of your hardware or its drivers, possibly upgrading to a newer kernel will fix that. After your machine crashes, wait a few minutes so you have a good gap of time that you are sure you didn't use the machine, then boot it again and investigate your /var/log/syslog file. Beginning of each line has a timestamp, so from the end of the file scroll up to the gap of time where you didn't use it. Explore the 100 or so lines before that for any errors or warnings. At least in my case there was a clue there and one easy kernel setting later my machine has never been so stable...

Also for some reason half the time my external usb drives wouldn't show in Nemo tho rebooting or logging out back in solved the issue and magically appeared.
Installed KDE 14 a.k.a 4.9.4 little in way of bugs occasionally panel and desktop became unresponsive for like 30-60 seconds then work fine for awhile but randomly rearing it's ugly head time to time. And Amarok crashing was the biggest offender. So switched to Clementine for music and a lot smoother running and glitch free.
But backported 4.10 and Zero! issues at the present moment. No bugs,lockups,etc...
Running smooth for me the last 2 weeks.
Amd dual core 4gb ram with Ati 4350 graphics running default Open driver on dual displays.
Pretty satisfied with stability and bug free so far.
