Daily freeze-ups with kubuntu 5.10
 
When I do a fresh reboot kubuntu, everything's great.

When I leave the system on overnight or for several hours and come back to it, the system is not right.

PROPERTIES OF THE FREEZE-UP:
1) Shaking the mouse upon returning to the PC immediately brings monitor back on.
2) Mouse works fine.
3) I can move the windows for apps around the screen.
4) For everything else I might try to do, it's as if I've got a PC of 1/100th the speed. Attempts to load apps are "never" successful, measured in human patience. Clicking things on the internet if a browser is up go at 1/100th the speed if at all.
5) Only way to get out of it is with power switch.


Any tips?
:confused: :scratch: :cry:

Is it possible that ubuntu is just plain not designed to manage being left on properly? I do some computer graphics, so I need a distro that is competent when it comes to handling a long render.

Well, I can't fix your problem. But I can tell you this isn't a Ubuntu problem. I've used Ubuntu without having this problem. I'd leave my computer on for 3 or 4 days at a time and it would still run really well.

On the other hand though, I did have this problem where every now and then programs would stop loading. Like I could open then once or twice, and then close them, but if I tried to open them a third or fourth time, they would load for several minutes and then disapear as if I never tried to open them. It was weird, and I've only ever had that trouble with Ubuntu.
