Hi James,

Any luck with this? I am experiencing lockups as well.
When I checked your specs I noticed your also using a OCZ vertex 4 ssd
I am using the OCZ vertex 4 128gb ssd. Its a fresh Mint 15 cinnamon install, locks up randomly.
If you have any further info please post.
If anyone has any ideas pls let me know, its driving me nuts.

Cheers

I had some freezing issues, mouse pointer would move but I couldn't click anywhere.
I asked for help on the IRC helpchannel and Clem suggested I update the kernel from the default -19 to a higher version. I found -25 solved the issue.
You can upgrade the kernel via command line or via the Software Manager.
