[ubuntu-uk] 10.10 System Freeze Problem

Hi Guys

Since clean-installing Xubuntu 10.10 on an Acer 1410 laptop, the system is freezing up once or twice during a daily 8 hour session. The mouse and keyboard become inoperative and, if I disconnect the mouse then reconnect it, the mouse does not light up, suggesting that no power is being fed through the USB port.

I've not had 10.10 long enough to observe any particular pattern or scenario that causes the problem. It certainly didn't occur with 10.4.

Does anybody know of an existing log file, or application I can use, to help identify the cause? Please bear in mind that, as I have to kill the power before rebooting, any log files may not be closed cleanly.

Thanks very much.
