Same here. Happend two or three times when I let my Laptop run over
night. Woke up to some Fan noise.
Running Gnome on SIS300 gfx. I noticed that while other programs quit
fairly fast it does take a lot longer for firefox (from sarge) to do
anything under these conditions (ok its a huge monster and other apps
rather slim). In particular when I need to save a bookmark before
killing it, it will take a while to do so.
Since firefox is almost always running (a lot of open tabs are usually
the reason I decided not to shut down) I don't know if this would happen
without it running.
