    This should help to reboot if it happens again so you do not have to do a hard reboot.

    Also the next time it freezes look at the log files with these commands to see if you can narrow it down.

    Code:
    sudo tail -n100 /var/log/syslog
    sudo tail -n100 /var/log/kern.log

    cheers Wild Man...& QIII

    update - 01:06 hrs and no hitch

    logs seem the best way to go rather than bouncing in and out of apps I have to say

    seems as though I am in good company

    will update when I can

    There are many people here that can read the log files, I am probably not going to available long, I am drinking stuff to prepare for two surgical procedures in the morning so I have my hands full.

    Thumbs up Re: Hello....newbie here. 14.04 crashing and no way out apart from cold re-boot

    Warm re-boot (Alt+SysRq while slowly typing REISUB) is now working great. Now time to tackle all the other stuff that's going on.
