Problems with KDE Freezing


For the past two nights, I've left my system on overnight, the first night I had GAIM running, and the second night I had two Bit Torrent windows downloading some anime.

Both times, when I wake up in the morning, the system is completely frozen. It seems to take no input and I have to reset, which I really don't like doing.

I'll be around answering any questions about specifics and performing experiments if needs be.

Thanks in advance.

Does it only do it when you use this GAIM or does it do it when you leave it on all night?

It's when I leave it on all night, last night I was only running the 2 bit torrent downloads.

BTW: I'm willing to use a different window manager if KDE is the problem. I might go that direction anyways just to have less overhead.

You might want to look at the hardware. It sounds to me like ot could be a power supply, CPU, memory or even a heat problem.

The problem is, it never froze under windows like this... although I do have some other odd issues with my hardware... Even though I have 266 MHz DDR Ram, 1.33 GHz CPU and a 133MHz FSB on my motherboard... I can only run at 100MHz FSB speed for some reason, limiting me to 1Ghz, instead of 1.33

Me being the tech weenie I am, have no idea why it could be doing this. My EE roommate has no idea either, but he hasn't really looked into the problem in a hardcore manner.

I could also be that a power management app is causing this too. Like it might try to hybernate or something and just lock up.

I just checked and I don't even have APM or ACPI compiled into my kernel...

Back to this, could it have been GAIM? My system froze again last night and I was running GAIM...
