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.

Ok, every hour, at 36 minutes after, my pointer freezes and then my X is corrupted horribly for about 4 seconds and whatever music i'm playing chokes and loops during this also. Afterwards everything is fine. I hear hard drive access leading up to and during this occurence every time. None of my user accounts have any cron jobs that could be related. I don't know what log files to look for. Need some help diagnosing this. Sorry I don't have anything more like error messages(that I know of)
got it right before and right after it happened: these lines were generated in /var/log/messages when it happened:
Apr 19 23:36:25 Hrothgar network: Shutting down loopback interface: succeeded
Apr 19 23:36:26 Hrothgar gpm: gpm shutdown succeeded
Apr 19 23:36:27 Hrothgar apmd: System Suspend

Apr 19 19:36:32 Hrothgar network: Bringing up interface eth1: failed
Apr 19 19:36:32 Hrothgar netfs: Mounting other filesystems: succeeded
Apr 19 23:36:33 Hrothgar apmd: Normal Resume after 00:00:06 (-1% unknown) AC power
Note that there was an eth1, but I disabled it. I get one small error message when booting, which is rare, so I decided to go the lazy route and not fix that. Those couple lines are no problem to me. The problem seems to be something like it is going into momentary suspend for some reason that I am unaware of. Can i tell the advanced power management daemon to chill out some how?
I'm going to outright disable apm like you said, but I just noticed something quite odd. look at that log, how there was a time change back 4 hours and then forward 4 hours. Very strange. I synced with ntpdate again and then monitor blanked, like in power saving, until i moved the mouse. And more apm messages in /var/log/messages. I'll get it worked out.
