Unhappy 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.

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?

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.


freeze, hibernate, kubuntu, lockup, sleep
