strange issue with FC13


FC13 is great except for one weird problem I'm having. Every now and then the system hangs, including the keyboard, except for the mouse movement. I can move the mouse to my hearts content, but the buttons do not work. The only way to start using FC13 again is to do a hard reboot. Just noticed last night that when this happens the keyboard no longer turns on the designated lights when pressing the caps lock or num-lock keys. About to switch keyboards to see if this is the issue, but was curious if anyone else was having the same problem.

thanks,
jed

? is this a default Gnome install or is KDE also installed ?
it sounds like x11 is crashing . That is very common in fedora
what 3d card are you using ? the driver?
and a bunch more info is needed.

have you tried blacklisting the nouveau driver and install the nvidia kmod from rpmfusion
"F13, F12 & F11 Nvidia driver guides"
http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=204752

and see if that solves it
