    3. The whole system locks up as my running logs end at the time it locks
    up.
    4. I tried Ctrl+Alt+F1(through 7) and no response from the computer

    Thanks for your prompt advice!!!!!!!

    Hi
    OK, so you can log into this ISP router and check the settings?
    Specifically the built in firewall and wireless radio settings
    like channel, bandwidth, sideband etc?

    Are there other AP's around your locale on the same channel?

    Question Re: My computer locks up during long idles - continued

    I have a 128bit password for the wireless connection. I have other AP's around, not sure which channels. The firewall is on on my router. I am having trouble logging into my router. I will post again when I have the login problem fixed...

    Question Re: My computer locks up during long idles - continued

    The ISP settings regarding the firewall were basically on and off. IP Forwarding and such which were all turned off. The firewall itself was turned on. The wireless is using channel 1 WPA PSK security

    Hi
    Can you switch to WPA2-PSK and AES+TKIP for encryption on the router?

    Hi
    Probably setup a new wifi password as well On the router you have configured a password as well?

    Now, can you show info on your graphics card;
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk | grep 'VGA\|3D\|Display' -A3

    Hi
    OK, so your on the KDE desktop?

    Do you have another system that you can login from (or a smartphone/tablet) via ssh?
