Soooo
you don't have this problem at all when using win xp on the same computer
so we can rule out a hardware problem
right ???

I had something similar when using mandy 10.1
particularly when browsing a particular site that had flash animations
I went back to 10.0 and using the latest firefox
I just found 10.1 & 10.2 too buggy on my hardware

For me is the oposite. 10.1 did not recognize my sound and was quite unstable. 10.2 recognized it and is (i'm typing on it) much more stable.

And I develop web sites based on flash, so you can guess I haven't had any problems with that.

[Edit to add]So, dude, I am going to try to help you finding information about your PC

>> [B]sound like a bad problem about ACPI...

ACPI is a BIOS group features, one of them being the auto power off then you click "Shutdown" or something in the operating system. I don't know more then that.

>> give us some more details :
>> What's your kernel version?

Start linux. Open a terminal. If you have serious problems using the graphical interface don't worry. Just type CTRL+ALT+F1 or CTRL+ALT+F2 and you will have a console. You only need the console to find out these infomations.

Type "uname -r". This will tell you your kernel version. Write it on a piece of paper.

Type "uname -p". This will show your processor. Write it on a piece of paper.

Type "uname --help" or "man uname" for more commands =)

>> What's your computer (output of "lspci" might help)

Type "lspci". Try to write down the first few words (no need for the numbers) of the list, specially the line saying Ethernet of something like that. If the list is too big you can scroll using SHIFT+PAGEUP and SHIFT+PAGEDOWN.

> What kind of mouse are you using (USB, ps2? Some of the 3 dozen buttons modern
mouse??)

This should be on the box when you bought the mouse ...

Any way, I would try installing Mandriva Limited Edition 2005 rsss

The problem caused since my network modem uses USB and so is my mouse.



The simple solution is to use USB to PS2 converter or just to use PS2 mouse!
