Sooo many questions, soooo little information...
uncool story bro ...
I restarted it, everything is fine, I'm even mining now without any problems.
It doesn't smell like nothing.
I didn't tried.
Ati 5830, python phoenix.py -u http:/name:firstname.lastname@example.org:8332/ -k poclbm DEVICE=1 VECTORS BFI_INT AGGRESSION=7 WORKSIZE=128, Ubuntu 10.10.
No, but now yes.
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.
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 mine with aggrssion=7. Could be this the problem, so?
