Thanks, will keep this as a possibility also.

Yes, I'm using the FF web browser, not sure about the anti-scamming
feature. This happens when I am not actively browsing though the
browser is open. Sometimes I'm in the consoles, other times in mail or
another Gnome program, and sometimes just sitting here thinking. It can
be long enough that the screensave and powersave has kicked in.
I've removed the google packages, I'll keep an eye open for this.
