I disagree with that. I think the main complain is that the users expect 
to be able to keep doing what they had started, especially when they had 
been doing the same type of work for a long time without experiencing 
any sluggishness.

It would probably better to be warning before facts than after, like 
when the system is getting close from the point displaying a 
notification, the same way than you get a low battery warning before 
having the laptop suspending.
