Description of problem:
I just installed redhat 7.2 on my thinkpad with KDE.  A few minutes after 
loggin in, the system froze completely.  It happened while I was typing, 
not after a period of inactivity.  Control-alt-backspace did not work, and 
I had to power off to reboot.  I have successfully run redhat 7.0 
previously on this machine (Thinkpad a21e with 196 meg ram).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Did you get anything in /var/log/messages?
It is highly unlikely that apmd has anything to do with this (apmd takes care 
of handling apm events like "connected to AC power" or "disconnected from AC 
power", it does NOT handle CPU idle events).

Chances are this is either a kernel problem or an XFree86 problem (or broken 

If the machine is on a network, can you still ping it when it's locked up?

What hardware are you using?
