[ltp] A22p crashes occasionally on suspend?

Dear All,

I wonder if anyone else has had a similar problem to this:

My A22p is set such that, after 10 minutes, the (1)screensaver kicks in. 
After a further 10, it (2)blanks the screen, and then after a further 10 
minutes, it (3)suspends (suspend to RAM, ie apm-s).

This usually works, but I find that about 1 time in 30, I leave the pc 
and return to find it either:

	i) Has stalled between stages 1 and 2; the screensaver still 			"frozen" on the 


	ii) Has suspended, but wakes up into state (i).

In both cases, I have no control with the keyboard/mouse to attempt 
something like Ctrl-Alt-F1/Bksp/Del. However I can usually do 

Any ideas? This is a real pain, especially since I moved to Linux 
because it "didn't crash like Windows" :-)

(I am running Mandrake 8.1 on an A22p, with 512MB RAM. I use KDE, and 
have the Lucent Winmodem installed (and working).

Thanks a lot for your help

Best wishes
