System freeze and blocked input

Hi,

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?

Re: System freeze and blocked input

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 )
