http://askubuntu.com – about Ubuntu 12.04, but possibly affecting more. after some updates of middle of last week, xserver-xorg-video-intel frequently causes crash of xorg, such that keyboard doesnt work, only the mouse cursor can be moved around. only solution is to hard reset. the bug comes up mostly when browsing heavy web site (that perhaps use a lot of graphics acceleration) upon login there is an error message about system graphics. uninstalling xserver-xorg-video-intel solves the problem but removes 3d support. I think its a very serious bug affecting many people. related links; https://bugs.launchpad.net/u (HowTos)
