Hi again,

Problem: Screen freezes until I touch any key or move the mouse.

When does the freeze *start*?

minutes I can just stare at Gkrellm and see the clock (and everything
else) not doing anything. Everything on screen has stopped at whatever
they were doing at the moment it freezed. However, in the background
everything works (so the machine itself is alright) since the second I
touch 'shift' -key the display comes back alive and I see things - that

linux-image-2.6-amd64 2.6.32 and I've tried with kernel mode setting and

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Can you ssh in from a different machine while it's frozen?
