Re: Vista And Linux...
When it freezes, don't hit the power button. Instead, hold Alt and SysRq (PrtSc) and type the follow letters: R, E, I, S, U, B, leaving about 1 or 2 seconds in between. This is the safer way to reboot.
As for the freezing, can you press Ctrl+Alt+Backspace to restart X? Or Ctrl+Alt+F1 to go to the terminal? Next time it freezes, try pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1 and you'll be at the terminal, assuming you could. Login. Then type "top" (no quotes). You'll see the processes that are using the most CPU time and memory. Remember the PID of the one which is taking up lots of CPU. Then type "kill <PID_of_that_process>".
