Google search suggests that's a sign of kernel panic.)  The only
remedy is to hold down the power button until it powers down.  The
reason I suspect Network-Manager is twofold: (1) the freeze only
happened when I had the machine hard-wired to my network, and (2)
syslog showed lots of wlan0 activity - trying to connect, being denied
a DHCP address - just before the freeze occurs.  Has anyone else had a
similar experience?  I don't want to file a bug report against
Network-Manager unless I'm pretty sure it's the culprit.

it was happening to me with an atheros chip and ath5k module. Removing
NetworkManager in favor of WICD solved the issue, so I am pretty sure it
was the trouble maker.   ...

   I have had the same problem.
   Searched Synaptic but could not find the WICD package in Lenny.
