I would put money on the problem being one of heat dissipation, possibly
compounded by the fan control being mis-managed by the Linux ACPI or APM

The T series are very small, too, which would compound the problem.

Does it happen when you are doing something else CPU intensive?

Also, check the temperature of the exhaust from the CPU fan on the
machine. You may find a hint there about it being (or not being) an
overheating problem.


[1]  I don't know about your laptop specifically, but older ACPI or APM
     on some machines reportedly *never* enables the fan.

Life in Lubbock, Texas taught me two things. One is that God loves you and
you're going to burn in hell. The other is that sex is the most awful, dirty
thing on the face of the earth and you should save it for someone you love.
