Hi all,

I am not exactly new to linux but i am anything but an expert so bear with me please. Until recently I have been running Ubuntu 9 (not sure what 9.xx) as it was the only linux I could get working with my wireless (RT2870). Finally got round to upgrading and I am now on 11.04 which works fine with my wireless but I now have another issue.

Every few minutes (the time interval changes betwen 1 min and 10 mins) it decides to turn off. Its not like a shut down more like a suspend/hibernate except that it does it while i am in the middle of typing or using th mouse. I have tried changing the power settings under "Power Management" to never sleep but it still does it. It is really annoying cos I then need to press power to get it back on, re login and turn my wireless card back on, makes downloading anything of a moderate size all but impossible.

Not sure what information is required so I have stuck the output of lshw in, anything else can be supplied if required. The laptop is not a very well know one, its a Zoostorm Freedom that was modified before I bought it to give it a full size Hard Drive and stuff.

UPDATE: occasionally when the issue strikes pressing the power does not start it back up again, I sometimes have to totally cut power (remove battery and mains) then restart it again, usually when this happens the issue strikes again around login time.
