When the machine starts responding again I open top and find that xorg

resize the image, and xorg is using 70% of my memory. I imagine during
freezes more of the memory is being used (all?).

Is this sarge/Etch/sid? Just make sure that X is configured properly. Are you
using the correct driver? Are there any warnings in /var/log/Xorg.0.log? Is
dma enabled for the hard drive?

Is the problem occuring immediately after you reboot the machine? or is it
occuring sometime after you reboot the machine?

What is the output of "free -m"? What is your processor? What kernel are you
