I try to track down similar problems with my Breezy installation.
Problems I didn't have at least with Sarge. Maybe Hoary, too, but I
can't remember because while Hoary was installed I didn't had to use
my laptop that much.

Does `Ctrl Alt Del' work? Do you have the possibility for remote
access? You could then check whether the whole system freezes or
just the GUI.

Which driver do you use for your video card? I observed GUI freezes
with newer nv drivers of Xorg and XFree86. Installing the nvidia
drivers fixed the problem (search the Wiki for further information;
I don't have a link.).
