I am calling this a crash.
What happens is that the screen goes black, but the cursor is still visible, though it will not move. No key combination corrects this. I have to mechanically shut down the computer with the power switch to end it.

IBM T42P Thinkpad: one GB RAM
Kubuntu 10.04

This happens more often in the Gnome mode than in KDE

I have cut back on all startup programs to what I think to be a minimum; I am using no screen saver or even desktop background. Only three icons on the desktop and one panel.
