I have 4 * 5870s setup on one motherboard.
I have downclocked them and use a high -f value for poclbm so they are running cool enough - ~75-80C at most...
I (for some reason) took my mouse pointer and started dragging it off the screen, to the far right.
The computer immediately showed a black screen and said:
>> Starting CUPS spooler/server [ok]
>> Checking battery status [ok]
>> Stopping System V runlevel compatibility [ok]
I had to re-start and everything was all good again. I also double checked this behavior, it is most definitely caused by allowing your mouse to wonder... which worries me because I know some optical mice will simply do that given long periods of inactivity... Whenever I leave my mouse in the top right of the screen for example if I am watching something, it will occasionally and randomly move itself.
Has anybody else experienced this? Do you have any idea what could be causing it? Do you know how I can stop it!?
Ubuntu 11.04 desktop 64 bit, latest poclbm, SDK 2.1, catalyst v11.4, 16gb usb as hdd... ask if you need more info.
