Description of problem:
Acer Aspire 5583WXMi laptop temporarily freezes for 15-30 secs (see dmesg

How reproducible:
Unfortunately, cannot reproduce as problem is intermittent. The issue occurs
regardless of whether or not there is heavy disk use, and even if the dvd-rom

Random temporary freezes lasting for 15-30 secs, then system resumes normally

No such freezes

The problem was fixed by upgrading the firmware of my TS-L632D optical drive.
