    I also had this problem. My computer was useless for a few minutes or longer, completely ignoring mouse & keyboard. Sometimes I had to hit the power button to get out of it. After determining kswapd0 was the likely culprit, I did a Google search and came up with this command:
    echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches

    I added it to /etc/init.d/after.local, so that it runs at boot. So far it seems to be much better, though I haven't given it a few days to be sure. One benefit was immediately obvious though. On this computer, I could never get anywhere near the 35 Mb download I get from my ISP, using this computer. After adding that command, I now can. As I mentioned, I'll have to give this some more time to be sure, but it does appear to be the fix.

    Apparently, that fix didn't work. The problem returned tonight.
