[ltp] X220 freezes occasionally

I own my Thinkpad X220 (4290-W1B, manufacturing date is 11/08) for
about 9 months now. It happened about 5 times that without doing
anything unusual, my computer froze up or just restarted itself. I'm
running a recent version Archlinux. Does anyone have similar problems
with an X220?

I heard of mainboard problems with some X220 models. Is it possible
that mine is affected? I'd like to contact Lenovo's support, but I
can't reproduce the problem. Any experiences with Lenovo's support for
non-reproducable problems? Is it likely that they tell me that it's
because I don't run Windows?

Any experience with the X220 on Linux would be helpful. Does anyone
have an X220 which runs on Linux, and didn't have any freezes /
crashes as of yet?

Kind regards,
