Default laptop Digest, Vol 69, Issue 1

I do use my laptop for some heavy number crunching, but the freezing of the screen is independent of any operation, it can occur in few minutes or after few hours, there may be some program running or not. I am still not able to figure out really why this occur.

I tried using the keyboard short-cuts etc. assuming that its just the screen which freezed, but none of the operations worked as far as i have tried. numlock, caps lock are working fine.
I tried logging out of session, bringing up the terminal and gave some commands. but none worked, only thing i could do is ctrl+alt+F3 and then tried killing gnome and restarting but it do not restart. only one option is to restart the system, and i hate that.

Please suggest some actions which i could try or some possible solutions.

For some reason, Fedora freezes after an unspecified amount of time. I'm

able to move the mouse but everything else is unresponsive. So I just

switch to console <CTRL>+<ALT>+<F2> and use "killall -s HUP gnome-shell"

in root shell (#). Haven't tested any of the other Desktop managers but

I'm pretty sure this is the only one.

How many monitors are you using?



It's probably not this - because you can get at the shell - but I notice sometimes my lock screen doesn't display the password popup on a monitor ( or more accurately displays it on a monitor it is not displaying anything on). When I type my password it unlocks and both screens then display as normal.

Please file bugs. I haven't come across these situations while using

gnome3. The screen freeze does happen if you're using a 64bit kernel and

making high i/o related operations. Its a kernel bug, fixed in 3.2
