Hmm, nothing seems to stand out in the Xorg logs either. Also it's definitely not a CPU issue (that's why I mentioned it's not a lack of resources), my CPU is barely being used at all during the freeze. The freeze is completely random... sometimes I'm dragging a window and it freezes, sometimes I've just left the computer there for five minutes and when I come back it's frozen. But it's completely unrelated to the lack of resources. Still, good info, thanks.

Ah no worries, thanks. :) I just looked at syslog and kern.log, and in both of those, I looked for SysRq (since the first thing I do is flush the file system)... but nothing relevant seems to have happened before the flush, according to the logs. Let me check the xorg log...

Ah thanks. I just looked for /var/log/messages but it doesn't exist... is that an actual file or did you intend I should look at logs inside that directory? (If so, which logs?)
