Sometimes, after a few hours of use, elementary freezes and I have to shut it down by hold the power button. This is happening to me since I upgraded from Freya (didn't happen) to Loki.
My laptop is Asus-X550
- Intel i5-3337U
- Nvidia Geforce 720m
- 8 GB of RAM
Normally, when it freezes I have Chrome a bunch of tabs opened in Chrome and Intellij IDEA opened, a few hours have passed and I try to open other program, heavy or not. Maybe I need more RAM? But I think that 8 GB is enough to handle that...
I have also Windows 10 installed and no problems on it, so we can discard a hardware problem
Okay, so I reinstalled Loki and happened again:
The /var/log/syslog file after the system logged out itself (after waiting 3 or 4 minutes waiting without control of the mouse nor keyboard and without effect pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1) and logged in again.
Before starting to freeze, I launched Eclipse and only one tab in Chrome was opened at the same time.
Also, I had the top command running and there was nothing strange at the beginning of freezing, java (Eclipse) was taking about 0,7 % of RAM and was the most RAM consuming process. But after waiting those 3 minutes the XOrg service began to take more and more RAM, taking all of it until it logged out (Which is an outrage thing, given that I have 8 GB of RAM and was being used just before freezing about 2% of it)
Anyone know what is happening and how could I fix it?
