Hi,
just a couple of hints only:
- regarding curent state
- have a good look at
dmesg
/var/log/messages /* old and new */
- locking after several minutes may indicate trouble with
- suspend/hibernate
- System -> Preferences -> Power Management
System -> Preferences -> Screensaver
- look at
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 87 Jul 12 06:14 /var/log/pm-powersave.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4891 Jul 12 06:14 /var/log/pm-suspend.log
- look at driver/display/monitor/power/screen-saving related issues
-rw-r--r-- 1 root jb 213073 Jul 12 06:14 /var/log/Xorg.0.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root jb 157238 Jul 8 06:52 /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 32155 Mar 10 14:31 /var/log/Xorg.9.log
- top /* look at RAM and swap space; Ctl-M to see memory hogs;
Ctl-P to see CPU hogs; anyting unusually high in that system
area */
- regarding installation
look at, scan for errors, anything unusual (do not spend too much time ...)
-rw-------. 1 root root 27040 Mar 10 14:26 /var/log/anaconda.log
-rw-------. 1 root root 25123 Mar 10 14:26 /var/log/anaconda.program.log
-rw-------. 1 root root 126276 Mar 10 14:26 /var/log/anaconda.storage.log
Good luck.
