Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Coming straight to the point... Libreoffice 184.108.40.206 regularly hangs after 5-10 minutes. Weather the document is based on network or not, the hanging is almost sure to happen. However, it recovers after 10-15 seconds. This is a regular feature.
Systems configuration is:-
1. Ubuntu version (got by lsb_release -a)
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS
are you able to record the ouput of the terminal?
can you see some error code in it?
If you are not able to record it using SHIFT+ CTR+C in the terminal
maybe you can send the ouput of writer throug a pipe to a file and then you can review it.
I am thinking of something like:
writer > errorinwriter01.txt
.txt is not necessary but it will be easy to recognise what is in the file; 01 is just in case you want to make more versions to prove it.
fwiw, libreoffice isn't exactly lightweight.
i have 8gb ram, and still it hangs regularly for a few seconds (my cpu isn't the fastest though).
i think it's auto-saving.
i just wait it out.
i notice that op never actually revealed their full system specs.
my guess, it will answer at least part of the question once they do.
having windows vista on the same machine allows assumptions to be made.
