I left my pc open this night for mining, but I woke up because the fan was too loud. The pc was frozen, I could not even move the mouse.
I monitored my temps in the day and they were always under 76C.

Sorry for my english ._.

That is not good...

is everything ok, did you restart it ?

does it smell like burnt plastic ?

where you able to ctrl+alt+f1 to get to tty1 ?

What Specs? Software ? Ubuntu 10.04, 10.10, or 11.04

When mining aggressively you take away cycles from X input handling, like rendering cursor position changes even if at a lock or empty screen.

I've seen Ubuntu completely lock up when an optical mouse is not seated well, and is continuously sending small jitter to X server. This fills up input buffers/handling and leads to X 100% CPU and then kernel panic. System will have to be power cycled.

Try disconnecting mouse when you go to sleep.

I've had it happen at aggr=7 and it happens most quickly at aggr=11 or higher.

You're using an optical mouse, aren't you?
