One way to figure out if this is the problem is to enable the seconds display in
the system clock and seeing if the clock still updates when your desktop is frozen.

If it still updates, then that means that something is grabbing your input. If
it doesn't, then that means some graphics driver, X11, or your compositor (GNOME
Shell?) has hung.
