Sytem Slow Down

Post by Glockdoc »

Howdy!

This happened on another machine last year and I just rebooted to solve the problem.

Guess I should FIX the problem this time around.

I have an Acer J22 all in one, i3, 4g ram, Linux, free dos, hidden windows installation partition.

I update pretty much every day and some time in the last week or so I have noticed my machine seems to have really slowed down. The problem is A LOT worse after the machine has been on but dormant for a while, I seldom power down. A reboot seems to alleviate the issue. One time, the machine had been on, but dormant for 24 or so hours and it took a full minute for the password to pop up on my screen saver. When I click the button to shut down the menu box doesn't pop up( at least not before I get exasperated and hold the power button.).
It gets laggy like that other system does when it is doing it's constant downloading updates.

I cannot think of anything major I have done other than a couple of kernal updates. Looking back through my command lines macchanger is the only thing I have added w command line. I added airvpn today, but the problem was before that( I started having dns leaks and, following several post instructions, determined it is vypr vpn causing the leak(I know, another post).).

Thank you in advance for your thoughts<

Copy&paste is how you typically post terminal output; putting it in between code tags (as I've done for you this time) will make it easier to read.

If your issue is solved, kindly indicate that by editing the first post in the topic, and adding [SOLVED] to the title. Thanks!
