    Have you tried this?

    Alternatively, can you temporarily remove all your desktop icons and see what happens?
    Possibly, disable all gnome extensions?
    Till now and after the purge command I did yesterday I can't see anymore that "connect fail" message in the logs, so I think it's fixed now.... I can't believe the cause was an inactive Megasync app. I'll continue check my PC, since yesterday no freezes.

    I have active Desktop Icons but there are only Home/Trash system icons there, the rest are my files and folders located in $HOME/Desktop... but if I need to delete all of them maybe I need to change of distro LOL

    I'll going to test one by one each advice write here, thanks again to all!

    Broad idea is to try another kernel

    uname -a
    I have available these ones:

    Code:
    mario@mario:~$ uname -a
    Linux mario 5.11.0-37-generic #41~20.04.2-Ubuntu SMP Fri Sep 24 09:06:38 UTC 2021 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    This article might help ..

    https://www.systutorials.com/how-to-...-ubuntu-20-04/


    e.g. run this command

    sudo grub-mkconfig | grep -E 'submenu |menuentry '

    I see multiple choices in my menu since I have multiple SSD's with different versions.

    But if your freezing has gone there is no need to change kernel.

    You should see a recovery option in your grub menu. I also have installed rEFInd which I find useful to boot up.

    Re: System Freeze after sometime

    The first freeze of the day... with all my screens open (included FF) I go out, screensaver start and when I comeback PC is freeze.

    in this screenshot:

    https://cloud.lacunza.biz/index.php/s/jCaASQZfpkTLDmj

    You can see the last 3 problems reported by the log are related to cron jobs, so checking /etc/cron.d and compared it with my old HD I can see a new file: sysstat, that file contain this command:

    Code:
    5-55/10 * * * * root command -v debian-sa1 > /dev/null && debian-sa1 1 1
    the one already reported like a problem in log.

    I don't remember install it or maybe another software use it... I just move that file to anther folder and I'll make another test.

    Again another freeze.. Im tired!

    Tomorrow I'll going to backup all and reinstall the system.

    What do you think is better? 20.04 o 21.10?

    Thanks to all for your time and help!

    To install the 5.4 kernel in 20.04 you have only to execute:
    Code:
    sudo apt install linux-generic

    Uhmm... Could that affect other software compiled against the old kernel? for example nvidia drivers?

    Is there a way to auto-load that kernel and not the newer one at boot?

    Yes, there is, however, precise instructions depend on how many systems and kernels you have.

    You have to edit /etc/default/grub (with elevated privileges)
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/default/grub
    Code:
    GRUB_DEFAULT=0 This is the default - 0 means the first line in the Grub menu
    GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=menu
    GRUB_TIMEOUT=10
    GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
    #GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR="Ubuntu 20.04"
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""
    #GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=true
    Example below with an alternative default
    Code:
    GRUB_DEFAULT="1>2"
    GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=menu
    GRUB_TIMEOUT=10
    GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
    #GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR="Ubuntu 20.04"
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""
    #GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=true
    1 in "1>2" indicates the second entry of the main menu (Advanced Options)
    2 in "1>2" indicates the third entry of the submenu.

    When you are happy with your choice, run in the terminal
    Code:
    sudo update-grub
    Back up your existing /etc/default/grub so that you can go back to the beginning in the event of an error.
    Remember - Grub counts from 0

    @tea for one OK thanks!

    Well I'll going to install that kernel and make the tests... I really hate reinstall all and config / compile libs again...

    I'll going to update this thread.
