I have a freeze with different symptoms. For me switching to
a console also doesn't work, and the mouse is frozen as well.
But, if I wait a bit (somewhere between 3 minutes and 10 seconds)
it all comes back to life.

This only happens on my system at work, not at home
(both running up to date f18 64 bit). I tend to suspect
the radeon driver since my work system has a radeon card.

There is never any indication in any log files that
anything happened.
