I've done a bit of experimentation. I started Abiword then left the PC
running for just over 10 minutes. The screensaver kicked in and things
started going wrong. The problem may be a setting in Preferences -> Power
Manager. Completely disabled screen saver stuff with these settings:-
* Blank after = never
* Put to sleep after = never
* Switch off after = never

Left system for at least 12 minutes. PC kept on going with no problems.

Will reinstall lubuntu 15.04, remember to disable those settings and then
see if I can persuade Software Updater to run OK.
