It's an Asus Crosshair IV with 8GB and an AMD X6 1090T, Sapphire
HD5770 and a WD 6G/s SATA3 disk.

I'm using KVM, but it just happened again without any VMs running. I'm
now not using NetworkManager, and instead just 'network', since I
wanted to use bridging, which NetworkManager doesn't seem to support.

There's nothing in the logs to indicate what may be causing this. I
didn't see it happen the last time, since the monitor was turned off,
but the previously it presented a blue screen with the F in the
center, and no mouse cursor.
