Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 452192
Lenovo Thinkpad T60 hangs overnight
Last modified: 2008-06-30 19:22:42 EDT
I have a T60 which was recently upgraded from F7 to F9 via anaconda, and is
currently updated with the latest RPMS.
Most nights, it hangs some time after 4:46am (which is around where the last
syslog or cron log message is). I've seen this in the last few F9 kernels (all
since upgrading to F9).
I thought it might be the mcelog cron job, and disabled it, but it still happens.
By hang, I mean, the system is entirely unresponsive, nothing on the screen,
doesn't respond on the network or to keyboard/mouse/anything. I have to unplug
DC power and remove the battery.
The laptop is docked and has an external monitor attached, with the lid closed.
I haven't see this problem since posting the bug.
weird. I was just reading about the thermal problems some of the other
thinkpads have had (the x60 in particular) at
Has the ambient temperature changed notably recently that could affect it ?
If anything, this is the coldest the machine has been. I cleaned out some dust
a couple of months back, which lowered the cpu temps from 63C to 43C.
spooky. oh well, reopen/file a new bug if it misbehaves again?
