[ubuntu] Dell m1530 hangs

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I hope this isn't a Dell m1530 only problem but I upgraded my Dell to version 11.10 and noticed that the laptop "freezes" randomly. Most of the time it's while the laptop is in "sleep" mode but from time to time while I'm using it the glidepad simply stops responding, the mouse pointer doesn't move and the buttons stop responding but the keyboard still works. When it freezes while in sleep mode nothing works. When it freezes my only option is to hard reboot by pressing and holding the power button. Anyone else have this problem and better yet know of a solution. :-) Fran (Hardware)
