I’m having an issue with random laptop freezes that I just can’t seem to pinpoint the reason. I have a Dell Latitude E6400 laptop with SUSE 11.3 installed. If I do my work with the laptop sitting connected to my Dell docking station, the system will hard freeze at random intervals, and I have power cycle the laptop to get it working again. I have not had any problems when the laptop is used separately from the docking station.
I’m not sure what other system logs or troubleshooting methods I can use to figure this one out. There isn’t much, if anything, being written to /var/log/messages to explain the sudden freezes, and Google searches turn up little.
If anyone has encountered this issue and has a solution, please let me know. Thanks.
