    I read the past thread on the Overreactive SMS but the person didnt have the same issue. I have noticed this past week while I am on batttery or power that when I lift my laptop or even move it, then put it down on my lap or surface, the entire computer freezes. Nothing responds, you cant move the mouse. I am forced to do a hard shut down and then when it boots, it takes over 1:30 when it usually takes less than a minute. I havent really noticed anything else wrong with the computer.

    Anybody know whats up?

    Is there an actual KP? Can you check your logs?

    No there is no KP at all....just a really bad freeze. Cannot force quite, cannot enter sleep mode. I cant find anything in my console logs.

    Not normal if you are just moving the computer a little bit. I DO have the hard drive clicking problem when I move my computer, as if the head is disengaging, but I don't experience any freezing etc.
