Same here. I have these random freezes on my laptop and since I do not
have another m/c to access it, I am completely hosed :-(

The mouse & keyboard do not respond. I wanted to use compiz but then the
system would freeze more often.

I believe the problem is strongly related to the graphics driver. I have
a ATI M300 => radeon300 driver.

During the recent freezes, the only application that could have caused
an issue was Thunderbird's notification mechanism (which brings up a popup)

This behavior is definitely not acceptable. But what frustrates me the
most is the absence of any logs!!!! (Arghhh!!) Any hope of logging a bug
so that developers could fix the issue is lost.

Does any one know how I could capture these error messages? What are the
parameters to generate logs for the graphics drivers?

thanks,
Rogue

I updated to the latest 2.6.22 kernel and my machine still freezes on
me.  So now I'm using the "nv" driver.  I'll see if it still freezes.
