    Unhappy Sometimes my cursor freezes

    Hello everybody!

    I have this problem in Ubuntu and in Mint (ubuntu based).

    Sometimes my cursor freezes and then all X freezes too, and nothing can be done. Is a netbook so the only way to "fix it" is geting off the battery and power supply.
    I don't know what causes this freezes. Someone can help me or give me some idea?

    Data: Netbook Classmate (Intel), Atom N450 1,66GHz, 1GB RAM, 160GBs SSD (as disk).

    Distros: Ubuntu 11:04, Linux Mint 11 (Ubuntu based version). Both with Gnome 2.32.

    Try Mint 9, it's based off of Ubuntu 10.04, which has a longer shelf life anyway, since it is an LTS release. I have found slower, older machines like the one you described don't like the kernel used in 11.04.
