[Bug 1255531] Re: Daily, random hard freeze/lock up during idle since 13.10


With the freezes I had it was not possible to "revive" from, all I could
do is long-press the power button.

So maybe the freezes you encounter are another issue, maybe this bug:

It is about KDE but sounds similar and might be related to the video
driver, so maybe Unity suffers from the same issue?

  Daily, random hard freeze/lock up during idle since 13.10

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Since about the final version of 13.10 (using it since Beta 2), my
  Lenovo L420 which was running stable until then randomly hard
  freezes/locks up about once a day while idling.

  It never happens while I am using the PC, only when I am away. It
  sometimes runs through a whole night, and sometimes it freezes when I
  leave it idle for just an hour or so. Once it froze while the screen
  was not blank yet, same situation.

  I have tried to disable power management in KDE and run without
  external screen and external harddisks, just on battery with nothing
  connected, then it also happens.

  The screen is usually blank, there is no reaction to either mouse or
  keyboard, switching to a console not possible, connection through VNC
  or SSD not possible. I need to hard-shutdown by long-pressing the
  power button.

  There is nothing in dmesg or syslog, it just ends and continues with
  the restarts. No kernel panics or something like that.

  Any advice on how to trace down the issue or similar experience?
