    Red face toshiba satellite l505-ls5005 randomly reboots

    I thought it might be hardware but its a dual boot and windoze doesn't crash.

    steve@steve-desktop:~$ cat /etc/issue
    Ubuntu 11.04 \n \l

    steve@steve-desktop:~$ cat /etc/lsb-release
    DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
    DISTRIB_RELEASE=11.04
    DISTRIB_CODENAME=natty
    DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 11.04"
    steve@steve-desktop:~$


    Most of the time it seems to have something to do with a screen-related event,
    such as moving the touchpad pointer when the screensaver is on or if an event
    from a shell wakes up the screen while it is in screensaver. Suddenly, boom,
    it reboots. I have set the screensaver to never come on to see if that
    fixes it.

    I have had a hard time reading entire posts. A post will end with ... and then I
    can't figure out how to see the whole thing. Because of that I am only somewhat
    sure that this has not been mentioned by some one else.
