View Full Version : [ubuntu] Gnome locking up in Hardy

May 29th, 2008, 11:51 AM
Just built my son a nice Hardy Machine - AMD Athlon XP 2000 512mb. runs nice and quick, but Ive got a slight problem. if its switched on and left without touching the keyboard or mouse, gnome seems to lock up, cant shutdown or choose any menu entries. Ctrl ALT Backspace kills X but when I relogin to gnome, its still locked up. only option is to reboot the machine. It works fine straight after a reboot. I thought it was the screensaver, so I turned it off, but still getting the lockup. Any ideas oh wise gurus?

Im surprised no-one stepped in with help here..
Im going to try tonight deleting .gnome in /home and see if that helps...

I fixed it myself!
I had disabled Gnome-Power-Manager in "sessions" and once I Re-enabled it, no more lockups!!
Thanks go to me!
