X freezes quite alot


I have trouble in slack 9.1 with x freezing on a regular basis - usually about once a day - I've disabled the xscreensaver and i've edited out the lines in startup files that started the powermanagement daemons and still x freezes if left unattended for several hours. Can someone please help?

The X windows system is the one thing I have significant problems with on my system - if you find a solution, I'd also like to know about it

easy solution?
get your optical mouse, put it on a mirror or something, so it keeps registering movements every now and then, and lets your x server assume you never stopped using your box... =]

You running some kind of gkrellm-ish thing?
It should tell you if you have some programs running wild and that was my problem in the past, I would let it sit all night, get on it and everything would be WAY slow, so once I got gkrellm(there's a better alternative but gkrellm is pretty) it told me something was taking 100% of my cpu time, so I killed a few programs and found the culpret.
