In syslog there are 30 instances of the word 'error'   More than once I see
something to do with Networkmanager

 <warn> error requesting auth for (3)
GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NameHasNoOwner: Could not get UID of
name ':1.31': no such name

But Network manager seems to be just fine. There are multiple error
messages relating to it however.

I see it loading  org.freedesktop several times but I think it is doing
other things with each effort.

 Gdk-WARNING: gnome-session: Fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily
unavailable) on X server :0.#012

*ERROR* uncleared fifo underrun on pipe A

 *EROR* CPU pipe A FIFO underrun

I failed to mention that there does not appear to be a swap partition.  I
did a LVM install.  I was not worried about it since at first the install
worked just fine without a  swap.

This laptop only provides a 2 minute memory test.  Grub provides no memtest

Syste monitor seems just fine since last night.  I am getting no lag right
now.  My touch screen was working when I used it last night and it is not
working now.  I restarted lightdm and there is no lag.
