I guess I will have to look at the logs. Damn... time and knowledge is
what I don't have. Will be travelling for the next 3 days and only have
a chance to check it out after that.

not sure if my filesystem needs to be fscked. But I always thought that
happened on bootup time anyway after a certain number of boots.

Also have tried the ctrl alt f1 thing which was a good useful trick to
get to the terminal but with the same results of needing to press
various keys to get things moving.

It is just strange that it happened in the last day or two. And I did
not fiddle with the system save for doing the usual ubuntu updates.
