Question periodic freezing


Hello everyone,
I am running Redhat 9.0 on a HP Pavillion N5390 notebook. The OS seems to freeze up 20 mins into the screensaver. The timing is very regular, it happens right around that time, happens with every screensaver. Any ideas which logs I should look and what I should be looking for? I've tried looking at the system log, for any abnormal kernel messages but didnt see any. I am going to try and leave it there without an screensaver to test whether its coz of the screensaver or not. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks!

I just confirmed that without the screensaver the computer runs fine. My graphics card is only 8MB. I am wondering whether the random scrrensaver overloads the graphics card
