Description of Problem:I have a Dell Inspiron 8000 laptop.  I have 
installed a dual boot (win2000 server & Linux 7.1)with Lilo.  When i power 
down from the linux O/S, it tends to freeze up.  I have to hard power down 
the laptop.  This causes linux to run through a check list when i 
restart.  This is takes a toll on the O/S and eventually causes the system 
to crash.  I have to reinstall and start from scratch.  It also happened 
once during boot up.

99.9% chance it's a kernel or hardware issue, not a gnome issue

Can you give some information on where it locks up ?
(eg what's the last thing you do see ?)
