Cinnamon problem

I used for a while mint13 with cinnamon desktop, i got big problem,
it often freezes, and the screen stays like this until I reboot the machine!!!
So I decided to install mate, et use it at it place, then the problem disappeared???
I used it on I giga memory machine so no memory problem i think.
May be so daemon is started as root and consumes all the resources from time to time ???

any idea
thanks a lot

First of all I am not familiar with cinnamon desktop but as you've mentioned that some daemon started and consuming all your resources.

Please state what sort of daemon might be running. are you running any servers etc.

you can use following commands to make sure.

netstat -tnlp

to see if any services are running beside what you want to run.

I would suggest you to run
to check if there is any unwanted services.
