If I see this again, what kind of things should I look for that might
help determine the problem?
I am back to running sawfish now (Which I prefer to windowmaker) Should
I change to another windowmanager just to see if it occurs with that to?

I will change to windowmaker if I can disable completely the dock and
app icons.

Well, I don't put this system to sleep, I just use: fblevel off to turn
the LCD off.

Does that cancel that suspicion?  I still run pmud but it doesn't do
anything at present ( I always have AC Power and am running network
services so I don't want the system to sleep. )
