I have a 64bit arch desktop system and it keeps freezing - the screen turns off (though sometimes goes blank white) and all input is frozen. I can only hard crash the system afterwards.
The system is running a light install with openbox and nouveau driver. KMS is not used.
Just to be sure, did you check /var/log/messages.log and /var/log/Xorg.0.log for error messages when your system freezes?
Yeah, no error messages, though I can put logs on patebin or something. Ill try to grep them again, see if there's something I missed.
Had another error again just now - white screen, no system responce I couldnt even ssh to the computer (not route to host)
Edit: Also, the system only seems to have this problem when left on idle. Maybe something with Xorg trying to blank the screen? (But Xorg.log contains no errors :C )

Sharker the thread is more than a year old. Please start a new thread and link to this one if relevant.
There's no such thing as a stupid question, but there sure are a lot of inquisitive idiots !
