laptop freezes


It's over a year that I have fedora 20 on my laptop "Dell Latitude E650" without any problem till few days ago.
Since then, in every 2/3 times that I leave my laptop idle and it goes to sleep mode, at the time of going to sleep the laptop freezes. Of course I see only a light dark screen in which I cannot do anything other than restarting.

Any suggestions will be highly appreciated to solve this problem.

Try disable the screen saver daemon. Observe what comes up after few minutes of standby.
That is only a screen saver related problem.

it might be only screensaver related.

but do that first, and we continue from there.
