Thanks for this suggestion Chris... Yes, indeed I get my network
configuration via DHCP. And yesterday I had this 'sleeping/freezing'
problem again... So I checked the system protocol and there were a lot
of DHCP related messages (no errors or warnings though). The only
'errors' I spotted were the following: Nov 22 18:00:06 schoepke-laptop
kernel: [17190159.340000] do_drive_get_GTF: Run _GTF error: status = 0x5
Nov 22 18:01:02 schoepke-laptop gnome-power-manager: (schoepke) Critical
error: Cannot connect to DBUS Session Daemon Nov 22 18:01:26
schoepke-laptop gconfd (schoepke-4500): Die Adresse
»xml:readwrite:/home/schoepke/.gconf« wurde an der Position 0 zu einer
schreibbaren Konfigurationsquelle aufgelöst Does anyone know what these
mean? Are they indications for problems (sounds like)? Or are they
'normal'? In the meantime I try to use a static IP (no DHCP) at home and
see if this solves the problem... I can't remember to have had this
problem at university (where I use a network with DHCP over WLAN), so it
might is related to my network configuration at home... Thanks again for
the tip! cheers, Severin Date: Wed, 22 Nov 2006 22:24:07 -0600 From:

But I have a weird problem with both installations: Sometimes Gnome
doesn't allow the creation of new windows: When I'm working and want to
start a new app or open a folder, it happens from time to time that the
app/folder is not started/opened. There's a new entry in the task bar in
the likes of 'Mozilla Firefox wird gestartet...' (FF is being started in
english) that just disappears after a few seconds. I then can't start
applications, be it via the start menu, a panel launcher, a starter on
the desktop or from a terminal that is already open... Then suddenly,
after 10 minutes or so, the apps finally start/the windows get opened...
Is your network providing DHCP services to your system? If so, it
sounds as if perhaps the hostname is changing. When that happens,
GNOME applications may either refuse to start or may start after a
long timeout which seems to be your symptom.
When you start up, run 'hostname' and make a note of the name. Then
keep a terminal open. When you see the issue again, run 'hostname'
again and see if the name has changed. You may need to configure your
DHCP client to ignore hostname configuration from your DHCP server.
