Did a lot of testing today, poked around the messages log, went through all
the services...as long as I was working on the machine, it ran perfectly. It
was up for over an hour. I let it go idle and went to this machine. 10-15
minutes later, I heard the F7 box shut down. It'll stay up and running on
WinXP so, I think that rules out the power supply. I'm suspecting some power
management issue, but I couldn't find any anomalies. I cycled the power
settings in KDE Control Center on, reset all the settings, then turned them
all off, and then turned power management back off. Didn't help.
One thing I noted in logs is that Hyper-threading was turned off - is this
normal? This is a P4 2.8 GHz with 1 GB of ram - it's definitely
Hyper-threading capable - I guess I should check the BIOS and see if it's
turned off. Don't see how that would have anything to do with the machine
just shutting off - it doesn't shut down in orderly manner, by the way, it's
just up one moment, and the next off...
