It's annoying when you load up M$ and it works, but at least you know
the hardware's ok.
Are you using a fairly new kernel? I suspect something fairly
low-level is going wrong because your system is crashing - I would hope
that your system wouldn't be brought down if it was a higher level
problem. In view of that, I'd have a look at the bug lists for entries
against the kernel and sane versions you are using. I don't know the
url off-hand, but you can get to it via debian.org - I checked it once
for something and started there.
