[Bug 1575467] Re: Ubuntu 16.04 consistently freezes up / hangs
Just updating to say that it has happened several times today while
having multiple tabs open in Chrome. Not sure if that is related or not.
And that the processor fan seems to be running loud around the time of
the freeze ups.
I wanted to specifically say that the BIOS update did not help after
all. I would like to request that the importance status be changed to be
higher than "low" as this seems to affect multiple users on multiple
systems and is pretty critical to workflow. For some people it might
even be considered unusable.

Ubuntu 16.04 consistently freezes up / hangs
Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
After upgrading from stock Ubuntu 14.04 to 16.04 my laptop
consistently freezes up and is unresponsive to keyboard or mouse. The
only way is to do a hard shutdown. I'm usually in a browser when this
happens, and often watching a video or two. It seems to happen more
often in Google Chrome than Firefox, but it happens with both. It has
happened at least once with no videos loaded. I haven’t observed it
freeze / hang when I’m not in a browser, but that's mainly what i use
my laptop for, so that's where most of my time is spent.
