System freeze temporarily and wake up when move mouse or press any key

Hi all, this is my first time that I write here and I hope to have selected the right section of the forum.

I have a big problem with my openSUSE 11.2 32bit (but I have experimented the same error with other distributions), this problem consist in a temporarily freeze of my system after some seconds or some minutes if I don’t move the mouse or I don’t press any key… but when I move the mouse or press any key the system magically wake up and each applications begins to run from the point where was interrupted… this problem also affect on the system clock that loses every second that the system remain frozen.

I don’t understand where is the problem and I hope that someone have the solution.

My computer is a notebook with:
CPU Intel Core2 Duo T8100
GPU GeForce 8600M GT

What happens if you boot “failsafe” ? Do you have the same issues then?


could you post

$ uname -r

and all kernel messages (this will place a file named dmesg on your desktop):

$ dmesg > $HOME/Desktop/dmesg
