I don't know, what will you do?

There's not much I can tell you: I don't know your kernel version, anything about your system, or any related information.

Have you recently upgraded anything? Fresh install? Old install? Does the keyboard respond (caps lock cause caps lock light to come on) when it hangs?

You can try what is mentioned here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla....cgi?id=112480

Google for other possibilities (like you should've done to begin with).
