Description of problem:

At random intervals generally after working for a while and playing a movie in VLC the machine freezes for 2 - 4 minutes but you can see the hd is still working. It recovers after a while by informing me gnome-power-manager crashed.

F11, VLC & Gnome Power Manager

How reproducible:

Random. Happens every time after a while of working on my laptop while playing a movie. See attached report by bugbyddy
Actual results:

freeze & gnome-power-manager crash

Expected results:

peaches :)

This did not occur on F9 (recently upgraded). It only happens once a day I guess because gnome-power-manager will have crashed and not be restarted.
Comment 3 Richard Hughes 2009-08-20 08:06:46 EDT
Does installing the latest gnome-power-manager in updates-testing (and then rebooting...) fix the problem?

This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '11'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2010-06-28 09:32:18 EDT
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
