Re: Laptop Freeze when idle

Toshiba Satellite laptop
Core i3-4005U @1.7GHz x 4
Intel Haswell Mobile graphics

Fedora 25, running in Gnome3
Been having similar problems with freezing-when-unattended, since kernel 4.8.x-4.9.x.
(I additionally have total system unresponsiveness/freeze if I try to login using Wayland; I have to use the X11 login option to get to a useable desktop).

I'm wondering if there are similarities in the underlying problem with

Re: Laptop Freeze when idle

Quick question,

when you experience the freeze, can you ssh in from another computer ? (i.e. is the freeze only screen related?)

Re: Laptop Freeze when idle

bobox001 -
So, I had not tried that. Figured since the system was unresponsive to input commands (could not even toggle CapsLock or NumLock indicator lights on the keyboard when I pressed them), so must just be kernel panicked.

So, to clarify, this is in relation to my other problem (freezing on Wayland login): As soon as I connected via ssh, the system actually unfroze. If I encounter the idle freeze again, and have access to a second computer, I will try this and report back.

Also: Any idea how/why that would work?
